An event counting tool similar to 'perf stat' would be a nice addition to the oprofile toolbox. Using such a tool to do CPI analysis would result in more accurate results compared to a profiler, not to mention much less perturbation of the system (i.e., no PMU interrupts and saving sample information). Like operf, an oprofile event counting tool would understand symbolic native event names, making it easier to use than 'perf stat'.

    The new 'ocount' tool was pushed upstream on Jul 18, 2013. This feature request is now completely implemented.
