  • papi_xml_event_info - provides event information for PAPI preset and native events in xml format.


papi_xml_event_info [options]


papi_xml_event_info is a PAPI utility program that reports information about the preset and native events available on the current platform. A preset event is a PAPI defined platform independent event composed of one or more native events. A native event is an event specific to a given hardware platform. Similar information to that presented with papi_avail or papi_native_avail is presented, but in an xml format that is suitable for parsing by higher level performance tools. For each event, an index, a name, a description, and a PAPI event code are provided. In addition, extra information, like available unit masks, may also be provided for native events.


-h Display help information about this utility.
-p Output information on only preset events.
-n Output information on only native events.
-c <index> Output event information for component <index>. This option applies specifically to the PAPI-C version of this utility.


There are no known bugs in this utility. If you find a bug, it should be reported to the PAPI Mailing List at <>.
