Subject: [PATCH 09/10] perf tools: Support using -f to override perf.data file ownership for trace
Date: Thu, 2 Apr 2015 21:47:18 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1427982439-27388-10-git-send-email-yunlong.song@huawei.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1427982439-27388-1-git-send-email-yunlong.song@huawei.com>

Enable perf trace to use perf.data when it is not owned by current user
or root.

Example:

 # perf trace record ls
 # chown Yunlong.Song:Yunlong.Song perf.data
 # ls -al perf.data
 -rw------- 1 Yunlong.Song Yunlong.Song 4153101 Apr  2 15:28 perf.data
 # id
 uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root),64(pkcs11)

Before this patch:

 # perf trace -i perf.data
 File perf.data not owned by current user or root (use -f to override)
 # perf trace -i perf.data -f
   Error: unknown switch `f'

  usage: perf trace [<options>] [<command>]
     or: perf trace [<options>] -- <command> [<options>]
     or: perf trace record [<options>] [<command>]
     or: perf trace record [<options>] -- <command> [<options>]

         --event <event>   event selector. use 'perf list' to list
 						  available events
         --comm            show the thread COMM next to its id
         --tool_stats      show tool stats
     -e, --expr <expr>     list of events to trace
     -o, --output <file>   output file name
     -i, --input <file>    Analyze events in file
     -p, --pid <pid>       trace events on existing process id
     -t, --tid <tid>       trace events on existing thread id
         --filter-pids <float>
  ...

As shown above, the -f option does not work at all.

After this patch:

 # perf trace -i perf.data
 File perf.data not owned by current user or root (use -f to override)
 # perf trace -i perf.data -f
 0.056 ( 0.002 ms): ls/47325 brk(                                 ...
 0.108 ( 0.018 ms): ls/47325 mmap(len: 4096, prot: READ|WRITE,    ...
 0.145 ( 0.013 ms): ls/47325 access(filename: 0x7f31259a0eb0,     ...

 0.189 ( 0.003 ms): ls/47325 stat(filename: 0x7fffeb9a0d00,       ...
 0.195 ( 0.004 ms): ls/47325 open(filename: 0x7fffeb9a0d00,       ...
 0.199 ( 0.002 ms): ls/47325 stat(filename: 0x7fffeb9a0d00,       ...
 0.205 ( 0.004 ms): ls/47325 open(filename: 0x7fffeb9a0d00,       ...
 0.211 ( 0.004 ms): ls/47325 stat(filename: 0x7fffeb9a0d00,       ...
 0.220 ( 0.007 ms): ls/47325 open(filename: 0x7f312599e8ff,       ...
 ...
 ...

As shown above, the -f option really works now.
