Perf Reports Jump Instructions as Memory Access Instructions

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


I used the following perf command to sample user space read accesses to DRAM by evince: perf record -d --call-graph dwarf -c 100 -e mem_load_uops_retired.l3_miss:uppp /opt/evince-3.28.4/bin/evince

As can be seen, I used the PEBS feature to increase the accuracy of sampling. But there are some non-memory accesses reported as memory ones. Here is one of them reported by perf script -D: 11159097179866 0xfb80 [0x1778]: PERF_RECORD_SAMPLE(IP, 0x4002): 7309/7309: 0x7ffff6d6c310 period: 10000 addr: 0x7ffff7034e50

The access point is at offset 0 of the following disassembly:
Dump of assembler code for function cairo_surface_get_device_scale@plt:
   0x000000000002a310 <+0>:     jmpq   *0x2c8b3a(%rip)        # 0x2f2e50

   0x000000000002a31b <+11>:    jmpq   0x28690

This is an unconditional jump which will not lead to macrofusion.

Any help is appreciated.
