PMC.WESTMERE(3)	       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual	       PMC.WESTMERE(3)

NAME
     pmc.westmere -- measurement events	for Intel Westmere family CPUs

LIBRARY
     Performance Counters Library (libpmc, -lpmc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pmc.h>

DESCRIPTION
     Intel Westmere CPUs contain PMCs conforming to version 2 of the Intel
     performance measurement architecture.  These CPUs may contain up to three
     classes of	PMCs:

     PMC_CLASS_IAF     Fixed-function counters that count only one hardware
		       event per counter.

     PMC_CLASS_IAP     Programmable counters that may be configured to count
		       one of a	defined	set of hardware	events.

     The number	of PMCs	available in each class	and their widths need to be
     determined	at run time by calling pmc_cpuinfo(3).

     Intel Westmere PMCs are documented	in "Volume 3B: System Programming
     Guide, Part 2", Intel(R) 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developes
     Manual, Order Number: 253669-033US, Intel Corporation, December 2009.

		     ing).

	     OTHER_CORE_HIT_SNP
		     L3	Hit: local or remote home requests that	hit L3 cache
		     in	the uncore and was serviced by another core with a
		     cross core	snoop where no modified	copies were found
		     (clean).

	     OTHER_CORE_HITM
		     L3	Hit: local or remote home requests that	hit L3 cache

		     cross core	snoop where modified copies were found (HITM).

	     REMOTE_CACHE_FWD

     cmask=value
	     Configure the PMC to increment only if the	number of configured
	     events measured in	a cycle	is greater than	or equal to value.

     edge    Configure the PMC to count	the number of de-asserted to asserted
	     transitions of the	conditions expressed by	the other qualifiers.
	     If	specified, the counter will increment only once	whenever a
	     condition becomes true, irrespective of the number	of clocks dur-
	     ing which the condition remains true.

     inv     Invert the	sense of comparison when the ``cmask'' qualifier is
	     present, making the counter increment when	the number of events
	     per cycle is less than the	value specified	by the ``cmask'' qual-
	     ifier.

     os	     Configure the PMC to count	events happening at processor privi-
	     lege level	0.

     usr     Configure the PMC to count	events occurring at privilege levels
	     1,	2 or 3.

     If	neither	of the ``os'' or ``usr'' qualifiers are	specified, the default
     is	to enable both.

	     ber of instructions decoded each cycle.  If this number is	less
	     than four and the pipe stalls, this indicates that	the decoder is
	     failing to	decode enough instructions per cycle to	sustain	the
	     4-wide pipeline.  If SSE* instructions that are 6 bytes or	longer
	     arrive one	after another, then front end throughput may limit
	     execution speed.  In such case,

     FP_MMX_TRANS.TO_FP
	     (Event CCH, Umask 01H) Counts the first floating-point instruc-

	     (Event D1H, Umask 04H) Counts number of stack pointer (ESP)
	     instructions decoded: push	, pop ,	call , ret, etc. ESP instruc-
	     tions do not generate a Uop to increment or decrement ESP.

     RAT_STALLS.FLAGS
	     (Event D2H, Umask 01H) Counts the number of cycles	during which
	     execution stalled due to several reasons, one of which is a par-
	     tial flag register	stall.	A partial register stall may occur
	     when two conditions are met: 1) an	instruction modifies some, but
	     not all, of the flags in the flag register	and 2) the next
	     instruction, which	depends	on flags, depends on flags that	were
	     not modified by this instruction.

	     (Event D2H, Umask 02H) This event counts the number of cycles
	     instruction execution latency became longer than the defined
	     latency because the instruction used a register that was par-
	     tially written by previous	instruction.

     RAT_STALLS.ROB_READ_PORT
	     (Event D2H, Umask 04H) Counts the number of cycles	when ROB read
	     port stalls occurred, which did not allow new micro-ops to	enter
	     the out-of-order pipeline.	 Note that, at this stage in the pipe-
	     line, additional stalls may occur at the same cycle and prevent
	     the stalled micro-ops from	entering the pipe.  In such a case,
	     micro-ops retry entering the execution pipe in the	next cycle and
	     the ROB-read port stall is	counted	again.

     RAT_STALLS.SCOREBOARD
	     (Event D2H, Umask 08H) Counts the cycles where we stall due to
	     microarchitecturally required serialization.  Microcode score-
	     boarding stalls.

	     cycles due	to: Cycles when	ROB read port stalls occurred, which
	     did not allow new micro-ops to enter the execution	pipe.  Cycles
	     when partial register stalls occurred Cycles when flag stalls
	     occurred Cycles floating-point unit (FPU) status word stalls
	     occurred.	To count each of these conditions separately use the
	     events: RAT_STALLS.ROB_READ_PORT, RAT_STALLS.PARTIAL,
	     RAT_STALLS.FLAGS, and RAT_STALLS.FPSW.

     SEG_RENAME_STALLS
	     (Event D4H, Umask 01H) Counts the number of stall cycles due to
	     the lack of renaming resources for	the ES,	DS, FS,	and GS segment
	     registers.	 If a segment is renamed but not retired and a second
	     update to the same	segment	occurs,	a stall	occurs in the front-
	     end of the	pipeline until the renamed segment retires.

     ES_REG_RENAMES
	     (Event D5H, Umask 01H) Counts the number of times the ES segment
	     register is renamed.

     UOP_UNFUSION
	     (Event DBH, Umask 01H) Counts unfusion events due to floating
	     point exception to	a fused	uop.

     BR_INST_DECODED
	     (Event E0H, Umask 01H) Counts the number of branch	instructions
	     decoded.

     BACLEAR.CLEAR
	     (Event E6H, Umask 01H) Counts the number of times the front end
	     is	resteered, mainly when the Branch Prediction Unit cannot pro-
	     vide a correct prediction and this	is corrected by	the Branch
	     Address Calculator	at the front end.  This	can occur if the code
	     has many branches such that they cannot be	consumed by the	BPU.
	     Each BACLEAR asserted by the BAC generates	approximately an 8
	     cycle bubble in the instruction fetch pipeline.  The effect on
	     total execution time depends on the surrounding code.

     BACLEAR.BAD_TARGET
	     (Event E6H, Umask 02H) Counts number of Branch Address Calculator
	     clears (BACLEAR) asserted due to conditional branch instructions
	     in	which there was	a target hit but the direction was wrong.
	     Each BACLEAR asserted by the BAC generates	approximately an 8
	     cycle bubble in the instruction fetch pipeline.

     BPU_CLEARS.EARLY
	     (Event E8H, Umask 01H) Counts early (normal) Branch Prediction
	     Unit clears: BPU predicted	a taken	branch after incorrectly
	     assuming that it was not taken.  The BPU clear leads to 2 cycle
	     bubble in the Front End.

     BPU_CLEARS.LATE
	     (Event E8H, Umask 02H) Counts late	Branch Prediction Unit clears
	     due to Most Recently Used conflicts.  The PBU clear leads to a 3
	     cycle bubble in the Front End.
