parentperf stat: Make metric event lookup more robust (diff)
perf stat: Don't merge events in the same PMU
Event merging is mainly to collapse similar events in lots of different duplicated PMUs. It can break metric displaying. It's possible for two metrics to have the same event, and when the two events happen in a row the second wouldn't be displayed. This would also not show the second metric. To avoid this don't merge events in the same PMU. This makes sense, if we have multiple events in the same PMU there is likely some reason for it (e.g. using multiple groups) and we better not merge them. While in theory it would be possible to construct metrics that have events with the same name in different PMU no current metrics have this problem. This is the fix for perf stat -M UPI,IPC (needs also another bug fix to completely work) Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com> Acked-by: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@kernel.org> Cc: Kan Liang <kan.liang@linux.intel.com> Fixes: 430daf2dc7af ("perf stat: Collapse identically named events") Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20190624193711.35241-3-andi@firstfloor.org Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
