NAME

       perf-annotate - Read perf.data (created by perf record) and display annotated code

SYNOPSIS

       perf annotate [-i <file> | --input=file] [symbol_name]

DESCRIPTION

       This command reads the input file and displays an annotated version of the code. If the
       object file has debug symbols then the source code will be displayed alongside assembly
       code.

       If there is no debug info in the object, then annotated assembly is displayed.

OPTIONS

       -i, --input=<file>
           Input file name. (default: perf.data unless stdin is a fifo)

       -d, --dsos=<dso[,dso...]>
           Only consider symbols in these dsos.

       -s, --symbol=<symbol>
           Symbol to annotate.

       -f, --force
           Don’t do ownership validation.

       -v, --verbose
           Be more verbose. (Show symbol address, etc)

       -q, --quiet
           Do not show any message. (Suppress -v)

       -n, --show-nr-samples
           Show the number of samples for each symbol

       -D, --dump-raw-trace
           Dump raw trace in ASCII.

       -k, --vmlinux=<file>
           vmlinux pathname.

       --ignore-vmlinux
           Ignore vmlinux files.

       -m, --modules
           Load module symbols. WARNING: use only with -k and LIVE kernel.

       -l, --print-line
           Print matching source lines (may be slow).

       -P, --full-paths
           Don’t shorten the displayed pathnames.

       --stdio
           Use the stdio interface.

       --stdio2
           Use the stdio2 interface, non-interactive, uses the TUI formatting.

       --stdio-color=<mode>
           always, never or auto, allowing configuring color output via the command line, in
           addition to via "color.ui" .perfconfig. Use --stdio-color always to generate color
           even when redirecting to a pipe or file. Using just --stdio-color is equivalent to
           using always.

       --tui
           Use the TUI interface. Use of --tui requires a tty, if one is not present, as when
           piping to other commands, the stdio interface is used. This interfaces starts by
           centering on the line with more samples, TAB/UNTAB cycles through the lines with more
           samples.

       --gtk
           Use the GTK interface.

       -C, --cpu=<cpu>
           Only report samples for the list of CPUs provided. Multiple CPUs can be provided as a
           comma-separated list with no space: 0,1. Ranges of CPUs are specified with -: 0-2.
           Default is to report samples on all CPUs.

       --asm-raw
           Show raw instruction encoding of assembly instructions.

       --show-total-period
           Show a column with the sum of periods.

       --source
           Interleave source code with assembly code. Enabled by default, disable with
           --no-source.

       --symfs=<directory>
           Look for files with symbols relative to this directory.

       -M, --disassembler-style=
           Set disassembler style for objdump.

       --objdump=<path>
           Path to objdump binary.

       --skip-missing
           Skip symbols that cannot be annotated.

       --group
           Show event group information together
