NAMEs390_runtime_instr - enable/disable s390 CPU run-time instrumentation
#include <asm/runtime_instr.h> int s390_runtime_instr(int command, int signum);
DESCRIPTIONThe s390_runtime_instr() system call starts or stops CPU run-time instrumentation for the calling thread.
The command argument controls whether run-time instrumentation is started (S390_RUNTIME_INSTR_START, 1) or stopped (S390_RUNTIME_INSTR_STOP, 2) for the calling thread.
The signum argument specifies the number of a real-time signal. The real-time signal is sent to the thread if the run-time instrumentation buffer is full or if the run-time-instrumentation-halted interrupt occurred.
RETURN VALUEOn success, s390_runtime_instr() returns 0 and enables the thread for run-time instrumentation by assigning the thread a default run-time instrumentation control block. The caller can then read and modify the control block and start the run-time instrumentation. On error, -1 is returned and errno is set to one of the error codes listed below.
- The value specified in command is not a valid command or the value specified in signum is not a real-time signal number.
- Allocating memory for the run-time instrumentation control block failed.
- The run-time instrumentation facility is not available.
