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:
The above list, is what operf reports.
However, when I run, "opcontrol --list-events" I get this list:
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:
I just always get zero!
I get valid results.
