Hi,

I am using Oprofile on an ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore Platform. 

My question is , which one are the list of events which can be captured by Oprofile for this platform?

This list provides a list:

http://oprofile.sourceforge.net/docs/armv7-ca9-events.php

The above list, is what operf reports. 

However, when I run, "opcontrol --list-events" I get this list: 

http://code.google.com/p/mycodespot/wiki/CortexA9Events

Which is completely different than the first one. 

Moreover, for some of these events, when I do profiling I just get zero!
meaning that, oprofile says they never happen! 

For example, for this event: 
INSTR_EXECUTED
I just always get zero! 
However with INS_MAIN_EXEC  I get valid results. 

Thanks.
