PERF-IOSTAT(1) perf Manual PERF-IOSTAT(1)

NAME

perf-iostat - Show I/O performance metrics

SYNOPSIS

perf iostat list
perf iostat <ports> -- <command> [<options>]

DESCRIPTION

Mode is intended to provide four I/O performance metrics per each PCIe root port:

•Inbound Read - I/O devices below root port read from the host memory, in MB

•Inbound Write - I/O devices below root port write to the host memory, in MB

•Outbound Read - CPU reads from I/O devices below root port, in MB

•Outbound Write - CPU writes to I/O devices below root port, in MB

OPTIONS

<command>...

Any command you can specify in a shell.

list

List all PCIe root ports.

<ports>

Select the root ports for monitoring. Comma-separated list is supported.

EXAMPLES

1.List all PCIe root ports (example for 2-S platform):

$ perf iostat list
S0-uncore_iio_0<0000:00>
S1-uncore_iio_0<0000:80>
S0-uncore_iio_1<0000:17>
S1-uncore_iio_1<0000:85>
S0-uncore_iio_2<0000:3a>
S1-uncore_iio_2<0000:ae>
S0-uncore_iio_3<0000:5d>
S1-uncore_iio_3<0000:d7>

2.Collect metrics for all PCIe root ports:

$ perf iostat -- dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/nvme0n1 bs=1M oflag=direct
357708+0 records in
357707+0 records out
375083606016 bytes (375 GB, 349 GiB) copied, 215.974 s, 1.7 GB/s

Performance counter stats for 'system wide':


port Inbound Read(MB) Inbound Write(MB) Outbound Read(MB) Outbound Write(MB) 0000:00 1 0 2 3 0000:80 0 0 0 0 0000:17 352552 43 0 21 0000:85 0 0 0 0 0000:3a 3 0 0 0 0000:ae 0 0 0 0 0000:5d 0 0 0 0 0000:d7 0 0 0 0

3.Collect metrics for comma-separated list of PCIe root ports:

$ perf iostat 0000:17,0:3a -- dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/nvme0n1 bs=1M oflag=direct
357708+0 records in
357707+0 records out
375083606016 bytes (375 GB, 349 GiB) copied, 197.08 s, 1.9 GB/s

Performance counter stats for 'system wide':


port Inbound Read(MB) Inbound Write(MB) Outbound Read(MB) Outbound Write(MB) 0000:17 358559 44 0 22 0000:3a 3 2 0 0
