	  Enable the kernel to trace every kernel function. This is done

	  Enable the kernel to trace a function at both its return
	  and its entry.
	  Its first purpose is to trace the duration of functions and

	help
	  This tracer tracks the latency of the highest priority task
	  to be scheduled in, starting from the point it has woken up.

config HWLAT_TRACER
	bool "Tracer to detect hardware latencies (like SMIs)"
	select GENERIC_TRACER
	help
	 This tracer, when enabled will create one or more kernel threads,
	 depening on what the cpumask file is set to, which each thread
	 spinning in a loop looking for interruptions caused by
	 something other than the kernel. For example, if a
	 System Management Interrupt (SMI) takes a noticeable amount of
	 time, this tracer will detect it. This is useful for testing
	 if a system is reliable for Real Time tasks.

	 Some files are created in the tracing directory when this
	 is enabled:

	   hwlat_detector/width   - time in usecs for how long to spin for
	   hwlat_detector/window  - time in usecs between the start of each
				     iteration

	 A kernel thread is created that will spin with interrupts disabled
	 for "width" microseconds in every "widow" cycle. It will not spin
	 for "window - width" microseconds, where the system can
	 continue to operate.

	 The output will appear in the trace and trace_pipe files.

	 When the tracer is not running, it has no affect on the system,
	 but when it is running, it can cause the system to be
	 periodically non responsive. Do not run this tracer on a
	 production system.

	 To enable this tracer, echo in "hwlat" into the current_tracer
	 file. Every time a latency is greater than tracing_thresh, it will
	 be recorded into the ring buffer.

config ENABLE_DEFAULT_TRACERS
	bool "Trace process context switches and events"
	depends on !GENERIC_TRACER
	select TRACING
	help
	  This tracer hooks to various trace points in the kernel,
	  allowing the user to pick and choose which trace point they
	  want to trace. It also includes the sched_switch tracer plugin.

config FTRACE_SYSCALLS
	bool "Trace syscalls"
	depends on HAVE_SYSCALL_TRACEPOINTS
	select GENERIC_TRACER
	select KALLSYMS
	help
	  Basic tracer to catch the syscall entry and exit events.

config TRACER_SNAPSHOT
	bool "Create a snapshot trace buffer"
	select TRACER_MAX_TRACE
	help
	  Allow tracing users to take snapshot of the current buffer using the
	  ftrace interface, e.g.:

	      echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/snapshot
	      cat snapshot

config TRACER_SNAPSHOT_PER_CPU_SWAP
        bool "Allow snapshot to swap per CPU"
	depends on TRACER_SNAPSHOT
	select RING_BUFFER_ALLOW_SWAP
	help
	  Allow doing a snapshot of a single CPU buffer instead of a
	  full swap (all buffers). If this is set, then the following is
	  allowed:

	      echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/per_cpu/cpu2/snapshot

	  After which, only the tracing buffer for CPU 2 was swapped with
	  the main tracing buffer, and the other CPU buffers remain the same.

	  When this is enabled, this adds a little more overhead to the
	  trace recording, as it needs to add some checks to synchronize
	  recording with swaps. But this does not affect the performance
	  of the overall system. This is enabled by default when the preempt
	  or irq latency tracers are enabled, as those need to swap as well
	  and already adds the overhead (plus a lot more).

config TRACE_BRANCH_PROFILING
	bool
	select GENERIC_TRACER

choice
	prompt "Branch Profiling"
	default BRANCH_PROFILE_NONE
	help
	 The branch profiling is a software profiler. It will add hooks
	 into the C conditionals to test which path a branch takes.

	 The likely/unlikely profiler only looks at the conditions that
	 are annotated with a likely or unlikely macro.

	 The "all branch" profiler will profile every if-statement in the
	 kernel. This profiler will also enable the likely/unlikely
	 profiler.

	 Either of the above profilers adds a bit of overhead to the system.
	 If unsure, choose "No branch profiling".

config BRANCH_PROFILE_NONE
	bool "No branch profiling"
	help
	  No branch profiling. Branch profiling adds a bit of overhead.
	  Only enable it if you want to analyse the branching behavior.
	  Otherwise keep it disabled.

config PROFILE_ANNOTATED_BRANCHES
	bool "Trace likely/unlikely profiler"
	select TRACE_BRANCH_PROFILING
	help
	  This tracer profiles all likely and unlikely macros
	  in the kernel. It will display the results in:

	  /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace_stat/branch_annotated

	  Note: this will add a significant overhead; only turn this
	  on if you need to profile the system's use of these macros.

config PROFILE_ALL_BRANCHES
	bool "Profile all if conditionals"
	select TRACE_BRANCH_PROFILING
	help
	  This tracer profiles all branch conditions. Every if ()
	  taken in the kernel is recorded whether it hit or miss.
	  The results will be displayed in:

	  /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace_stat/branch_all

	  This option also enables the likely/unlikely profiler.

	  This configuration, when enabled, will impose a great overhead
	  on the system. This should only be enabled when the system
	  is to be analyzed in much detail.
endchoice

config TRACING_BRANCHES
	bool
	help
	  Selected by tracers that will trace the likely and unlikely
	  conditions. This prevents the tracers themselves from being

	bool "Trace likely/unlikely instances"
	depends on TRACE_BRANCH_PROFILING
	select TRACING_BRANCHES
	help
	  This traces the events of likely and unlikely condition
	  calls in the kernel.  The difference between this and the
	  "Trace likely/unlikely profiler" is that this is not a
	  histogram of the callers, but actually places the calling
	  events into a running trace buffer to see when and where the
	  events happened, as well as their results.

	  Say N if unsure.

config STACK_TRACER
	bool "Trace max stack"
	depends on HAVE_FUNCTION_TRACER
	select FUNCTION_TRACER
	select STACKTRACE
	select KALLSYMS
	help
	  This special tracer records the maximum stack footprint of the
	  kernel and displays it in /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/stack_trace.

	  This tracer works by hooking into every function call that the
	  kernel executes, and keeping a maximum stack depth value and
	  stack-trace saved.  If this is configured with DYNAMIC_FTRACE
	  then it will not have any overhead while the stack tracer
	  is disabled.

	  To enable the stack tracer on bootup, pass in 'stacktrace'
	  on the kernel command line.

	  The stack tracer can also be enabled or disabled via the
	  sysctl kernel.stack_tracer_enabled

	  Say N if unsure.

	  on a block device queue. For more information (and the userspace
	  support tools needed), fetch the blktrace tools from:

	  git://git.kernel.dk/blktrace.git

	  Tracing also is possible using the ftrace interface, e.g.:

	    echo 1 > /sys/block/sda/sda1/trace/enable

	  Those events can be inserted wherever kprobes can probe, and record

	  This option is also required by perf-probe subcommand of perf tools.
	  If you want to use perf tools, this option is strongly recommended.

config DYNAMIC_FTRACE

	default y
	help
	  This option will modify all the calls to function tracing
	  dynamically (will patch them out of the binary image and
	  replace them with a No-Op instruction) on boot up. During
	  compile time, a table is made of all the locations that ftrace
	  can function trace, and this table is linked into the kernel
	  image. When this is enabled, functions can be individually
	  enabled, and the functions not enabled will not affect
	  performance of the system.

	  See the files in /sys/kernel/debug/tracing:
	    available_filter_functions
	    set_ftrace_filter
	    set_ftrace_notrace

	  This way a CONFIG_FUNCTION_TRACER kernel is slightly larger, but

	  Say N, unless you absolutely know what you are doing.

config TRACEPOINT_BENCHMARK
        bool "Add tracepoint that benchmarks tracepoints"
	help
	 This option creates the tracepoint "benchmark:benchmark_event".
	 When the tracepoint is enabled, it kicks off a kernel thread that
	 goes into an infinite loop (calling cond_sched() to let other tasks
	 run), and calls the tracepoint. Each iteration will record the time
	 it took to write to the tracepoint and the next iteration that
	 data will be passed to the tracepoint itself. That is, the tracepoint
	 will report the time it took to do the previous tracepoint.
	 The string written to the tracepoint is a static string of 128 bytes
	 to keep the time the same. The initial string is simply a write of
	 "START". The second string records the cold cache time of the first
	 write which is not added to the rest of the calculations.

	 As it is a tight loop, it benchmarks as hot cache. That's fine because
	 we care most about hot paths that are probably in cache already.

	 An example of the output:

	      START
	      first=3672 [COLD CACHED]
	      last=632 first=3672 max=632 min=632 avg=316 std=446 std^2=199712
	      last=278 first=3672 max=632 min=278 avg=303 std=316 std^2=100337
	      last=277 first=3672 max=632 min=277 avg=296 std=258 std^2=67064

config RING_BUFFER_BENCHMARK
	tristate "Ring buffer benchmark stress tester"
	depends on RING_BUFFER
	help
	  This option creates a test to stress the ring buffer and benchmark it.
	  It creates its own ring buffer such that it will not interfere with
	  any other users of the ring buffer (such as ftrace). It then creates
	  a producer and consumer that will run for 10 seconds and sleep for
	  10 seconds. Each interval it will print out the number of events
	  it recorded and give a rough estimate of how long each iteration took.

	  It does not disable interrupts or raise its priority, so it may be
	  affected by processes that are running.

	  If unsure, say N.

config RING_BUFFER_STARTUP_TEST
       bool "Ring buffer startup self test"
       depends on RING_BUFFER
       help
         Run a simple self test on the ring buffer on boot up. Late in the
	 kernel boot sequence, the test will start that kicks off
	 a thread per cpu. Each thread will write various size events
	 into the ring buffer. Another thread is created to send IPIs
	 to each of the threads, where the IPI handler will also write
	 to the ring buffer, to test/stress the nesting ability.
	 If any anomalies are discovered, a warning will be displayed
	 and all ring buffers will be disabled.

	 The test runs for 10 seconds. This will slow your boot time
	 by at least 10 more seconds.

	 At the end of the test, statics and more checks are done.
	 It will output the stats of each per cpu buffer. What
	 was written, the sizes, what was read, what was lost, and
	 other similar details.

	 If unsure, say N

config TRACE_EVAL_MAP_FILE
       bool "Show eval mappings for trace events"
       depends on TRACING
       help
	The "print fmt" of the trace events will show the enum/sizeof names
	instead	of their values. This can cause problems for user space tools
	that use this string to parse the raw data as user space does not know
	how to convert the string to its value.

	To fix this, there's a special macro in the kernel that can be used
	to convert an enum/sizeof into its value. If this macro is used, then
	the print fmt strings will be converted to their values.

	If something does not get converted properly, this option can be
	used to show what enums/sizeof the kernel tried to convert.

	This option is for debugging the conversions. A file is created
	in the tracing directory called "eval_map" that will show the
	names matched with their values and what trace event system they
	belong too.

	Normally, the mapping of the strings to values will be freed after
	boot up or module load. With this option, they will not be freed, as
	they are needed for the "eval_map" file. Enabling this option will
	increase the memory footprint of the running kernel.

	If unsure, say N
