I am profiling an application on MIPS board (600MHz, linux-2.6.11, glibc) in "timer interrupt" mode;haven't figured out why it doen't support "event mode".
Oprofile runs for 277 seconds and the opreport shows a total count of 139371 samples.  The default HZ for 2.6.11 kernel is 1000. So in 277 seconds should it not have generated 277000 samples? Can someone please explain why the remaining timer interrupts didn't collect samples?
Thanks in advance,
