PAPI_enum_event man page

PAPI_enum_event — Enumerate PAPI preset or native events.

Detailed Description

C Interface:

#include <papi.h>
int PAPI_enum_event( int * EventCode, int modifer );

Given a preset or native event code, PAPI_enum_event replaces the event code with the next available event in either the preset or native table. The modifier argument affects which events are returned. For all platforms and event types, a value of PAPI_ENUM_ALL (zero) directs the function to return all possible events.
For preset events, a TRUE (non-zero) value currently directs the function to return event codes only for PAPI preset events available on this platform. This may change in the future. For native events, the effect of the modifier argument is different on each platform. See the discussion below for platform-specific definitions.


*EventCode A defined preset or native event such as PAPI_TOT_INS.
modifier Modifies the search logic. See below for full list. For native events, each platform behaves differently. See platform-specific documentation for details.

Return values:

PAPI_ENOEVNT The next requested PAPI preset or native event is not available on the underlying hardware.


// Scan for all supported native events on this platform
printf( "Name			       Code	   Description0 );
do {
    retval = PAPI_get_event_info( i, &info );
    if ( retval == PAPI_OK ) {
    printf( "%-30s %#-10x0s0, info.symbol, info.event_code, info.long_descr );
} while ( PAPI_enum_event( &i, PAPI_ENUM_ALL ) == PAPI_OK );
@par Generic Modifiers

The following values are implemented for preset events

PAPI_ENUM_EVENTS -- Enumerate all (default)
PAPI_ENUM_FIRST -- Enumerate first event (preset or native) preset/native chosen based on type of EventCode
@par Native Modifiers

The following values are implemented for native events

PAPI_NTV_ENUM_UMASKS -- Given an event, iterate through possible umasks one at a time
PAPI_NTV_ENUM_UMASK_COMBOS -- Given an event, iterate through all possible combinations of umasks. This is not implemented on libpfm4.

Preset Modifiers

The following values are implemented for preset events

PAPI_PRESET_ENUM_AVAIL -- enumerate only available presets
PAPI_PRESET_ENUM_MSC -- Miscellaneous preset events
PAPI_PRESET_ENUM_INS -- Instruction related preset events
PAPI_PRESET_ENUM_IDL -- Stalled or Idle preset events
PAPI_PRESET_ENUM_BR -- Branch related preset events
PAPI_PRESET_ENUM_CND -- Conditional preset events
PAPI_PRESET_ENUM_MEM -- Memory related preset events
PAPI_PRESET_ENUM_CACH -- Cache related preset events
PAPI_PRESET_ENUM_L1 -- L1 cache related preset events
PAPI_PRESET_ENUM_L2 -- L2 cache related preset events
PAPI_PRESET_ENUM_L3 -- L3 cache related preset events
PAPI_PRESET_ENUM_TLB -- Translation Lookaside Buffer events
