Tony Jones

from SUSE

Tony Jones works in the Performance Team at SUSE Labs which is responsible for analysing and fixing performance issues in SUSE's kernel releases as well as developing tools to aid in kernel performance analysis.

The perf tool was introduced with kernel version 2.6.31 but several major releases later, knowing which of its many features to use when and how to interpret the results is still challenging for many users. In this talk I will present a brief overview of the performance counters provided by modern x86 hardware followed by a discussion of the various monitoring capabilities offered by perf, when to use which and how to begin to interpret the results.

This is intended as an introductory talk for those with no significant experience using perf or undertaking performance analysis. An understanding of programming and architecture basics will be helpful.
