[PATCH v3 1/3] docs: perf: Add description for Synopsys DesignWare PCIe PMU driver

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Alibaba's T-Head Yitan 710 SoC is built on Synopsys' widely deployed and
silicon-proven DesignWare Core PCIe controller which implements PMU for
performance and functional debugging to facilitate system maintenance.
Document it to provide guidance on how to use it.

+Synopsys DesignWare Cores (DWC) PCIe Performance Monitoring Unit (PMU)
+DesignWare Cores (DWC) PCIe PMU
+To facilitate collection of statistics, Synopsys DesignWare Cores PCIe
+controller provides the following two features:
+- Time Based Analysis (RX/TX data throughput and time spent in each
+  low-power LTSSM state)
+- Lane Event counters (Error and Non-Error for lanes)
+The PMU is not a PCIe Root Complex integrated End Point (RCiEP) device but
+only register counters provided by each PCIe Root Port.
+Time Based Analysis
+Using this feature you can obtain information regarding RX/TX data
+throughput and time spent in each low-power LTSSM state by the controller.
+The counters are 64-bit width and measure data in two categories,
+- percentage of time does the controller stay in LTSSM state in a
+  configurable duration. The measurement range of each Event in Group#0.
+- amount of data processed (Units of 16 bytes). The measurement range of
+  each Event in Group#1.
+Lane Event counters
+Using this feature you can obtain Error and Non-Error information in
+specific lane by the controller.
+The counters are 32-bit width and the measured event is select by:
+- Group i
+- Event j within the Group i
+- and Lane k
+Some of the event counters only exist for specific configurations.
+DesignWare Cores (DWC) PCIe PMU Driver
+This driver add PMU devices for each PCIe Root Port. And the PMU device is
+named based the BDF of Root Port. For example,
+    30:03.0 PCI bridge: Device 1ded:8000 (rev 01)
+the PMU device name for this Root Port is dwc_rootport_3018.
+Example usage of counting PCIe RX TLP data payload (Units of 16 bytes)::
+    $# perf stat -a -e dwc_rootport_3018/Rx_PCIe_TLP_Data_Payload/
+average RX bandwidth can be calculated like this:
+    PCIe TX Bandwidth = PCIE_TX_DATA * 16B / Measure_Time_Window
