    PMU issue for opteron 6200, 6300


      Im using Opteron 6320.

      I think there is a problem about PMU.


      i tried to measure LLC cache miss by using "perf" tool in LINUX(CentOS 6.5)


      when i tried

          $ perf stat -e LLC-store-misses,LLC-load-misses ls


      the results is as follows

      <not supported> LLC-store-misses

                 7557 LLC-load-misses 


      as you can see, I cannot obtain "LLC-store-misses" .


      And when i use raw event number.

      from BKDG 15h, the L3 cache misses's event number is 0x4E1

      when i tried

            $ perf stat -e r4e1 ls

      the results is as follows


        Error: open_counter returned with 28 (No space left on device). /bin/dmesg may provide additional information.

        Not all events could be opened.


      there is not any messages in "/var/log/messages"

      and I also did "opcontrol --deinit"


      Even if "L3 cache misses", I cannot use almost PMU raw event code such as

        1. "Link Transmit bandwidth"

        2. "Memory Controller Reqeusts"

      which is metrics what i want to measure


      How can I use Raw Event Code with perf tool



      - I compiled linux kernel with all performance related modules

      - I only want to use "perf" tool which means I don't want to use CodeAnalysis and profile
