cpu family : 6
model : 10
model name : VIA Esther processor
stepping : 9
This processor is most commonly used in thin clients, notably by Hewlett-Packard, WYSE and Fujitsu. I am profiling code that depends on hardware-specific instructions (accelerated crypto functions).
# opcontrol --init
# dmesg | tail -n 1
[23369.717989] oprofile: using NMI timer interrupt.
# opcontrol --no-vmlinux --callgraph 6 --separate=lib
# opcontrol --status
Daemon not running
Separate options: library
vmlinux file: none
Image filter: none
Call-graph depth: 6
# opcontrol --list-events
Using timer interrupt.
# opcontrol --start
Using 2.6+ OProfile kernel interface.
Using log file /var/lib/oprofile/samples/oprofiled.log
Here I run my application, for over 30 seconds just to be sure. Tried some system binaries to the same effect.
# opcontrol --stop
# opcontrol --dump
error: no sample files found: profile specification too strict ?
I realize that is a bit of wishful thinking on my part to file a bug for supporting this rather obscure processor but perhaps it's an easy fix. I will be happy to provide any necessary information. I can provide SSH access to the affected machine as well.
