Subject: [PATCH 01/10] perf tools: Support using -f to override perf.data file ownership for evlist
Date: Thu, 2 Apr 2015 21:47:10 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1427982439-27388-2-git-send-email-yunlong.song@huawei.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1427982439-27388-1-git-send-email-yunlong.song@huawei.com>

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

Example:

 # perf record ls
 # chown Yunlong.Song:Yunlong.Song perf.data
 # ls -al perf.data
 -rw------- 1 Yunlong.Song Yunlong.Song 28260 Apr  2 10:18 perf.data
 # id
 uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root),64(pkcs11)

Before this patch:

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

  usage: perf evlist [<options>]

     -i, --input <file>    Input file name
     -F, --freq            Show the sample frequency
     -v, --verbose         Show all event attr details
     -g, --group           Show event group information

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

After this patch:

 # perf evlist
 File perf.data not owned by current user or root (use -f to override)
 # perf evlist -f
 cycles

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