Introduce the perf_regression test suite that must be run manually to
check if the support for the Perf-related features are available on the
current machine. This test cannot be run automatically since there are
some platforms where it can fail.

For now, the test only makes sure that we can trace events with perf
contexts enabled by raw ID in kernel and user-space. The test only works
if libpfm is installed on the system and fails if it is not installed.

This should be:
fprintf(stdout, "r%" PRIx64 "\n", info.code);

I will wait for other comments if any before resubmitting a new version
(or you can directly apply the fix when you merge).

Thanks,

The first two patches look good to me. See comments on this one below
(and your own reply).

Is this still true given lttng-ust's new "read()" fallback?

have_libpfm should be used to set an automake variable and enable the test
conditionally. Similar to what is done here:

Yes, the test tries to enable a raw context and it depends on the
hardware (which CPU, SoC, etc), so there are many places where it can
fail, including in VM in the CI.

Hum, the intent here is to make the tests fail if the dependency is not
available, but we do not want to enforce it as a dependency since most
deployments cannot run these tests. What we want here if for the test to
fail if a user tries to run it without the dependency installed, then
they will install the dependency and run it again. Having a transparent
way to disable these tests would render them useless because we will
think they passed.

There may be a better way of doing it, but we should avoid using magical
"skip" in this case, these tests should fail if the target architecture
does not support all the Perf-related features we support.

Thanks,

Julien

Agreed to not include them in the standard test suite. However, the
test should be skipped if the dependency is not found on the system,
along with a message explaining why.

Currently the test will fail with the following output if run without
libpfm4 installed on the system.

This does't make it obvious why the test is failing.

I want to make it clear to the user that the test is failing because
of a missing dependency, and not because his HW doesn't have the
capabilities needed.

Skip with a clear error message seems appropriate here, especially
since the test will not be run automatically.

Btw, I went ahead and merged the first two patches. I'll merge an
updated version of this one separately.

Thanks!

How about having a first step in the test that checks if the dependency
is present and fails if not ? This would make it clear that the
dependency is needed to run the test, and it would not magically pass if
run in the background or in batch.

I am really worried that skipping here will confuse users, I see this
test suite as a way to guarantee that perf-related features all work on
their system if the test returns 0 at the end.

Thanks,

Julien

That's fair. Feel free to have a look at how we use autoconf to generate
the test scripts based on configure-time results in Babeltrace [1][2].

You should be able to export "LTTNG_TOOLS_BUILD_WITH_LIBPFM",
check its value in the script and bail out with an explanation.
