I’m running oprofile 0.9.5 on a Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 2354, Linux My machine is a ProLiant BL465c G5.


I do

opcontrol --start --vmlinux /home/monchier/linux- -e CPU_CLK_UNHALTED:500000 --separate=lib,cpu


opcontrol --dump



but what I get is


opreport error: No sample file found: try running opcontrol --dump

or specify a session containing sample files


I put a printk in  /drivers/oprofile/cpu_buffer.c in the log_sample function, and this is never triggered. Only if I generate an NMI from my BMC, it gets triggered, but only once. I guess, this means that if I generate other NMIs these are not detected.


Anybody knows of any issue with this setup?

Any help is welcome,
