Victim Buffer events

Could anyone confirm whether the performance monitoring counters on the AMD hardware can record events/subevents that relate to cache evictions from the L1 stage onto the Victim Buffer (VB).

I also want to know if it's possible to capture event data that shows VB accesses and misses, as well as VB flushing of evicted L1 cache lines onto the L2 cache.

Thanks in advance for your help
