I’m running oprofile 0.9.5 on a Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 2354, Linux 2.6.29.6. My machine is a ProLiant BL465c G5.

 

I do

opcontrol --start --vmlinux /home/monchier/linux-2.6.29.6/vmlinux -e CPU_CLK_UNHALTED:500000 --separate=lib,cpu

yes>/dev/null

opcontrol --dump

opreport

 

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,

 

Thanks
