Command-line tool

Postby pusukuri » Sat Oct 29, 2011 1:19 pm

Hi,
I have installed PAPI on my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server and run the tests successfully.
However, I would like to know whether I can use PAPI for monitoring performance event
counters without changing source code. Please let me know.
For example:
$ <utility-based-on-papi> <events> <target binary>

There is a utility called "perfex" that might do what you want. I understand you'll want to use the CVS version if you're building against current versions of PAPI.

It might be interesting if we actually included such a simple utility with PAPI, as this is a common thing to want to do.
