NAME

       ophelp - list OProfile events

SYNOPSIS

       ophelp [ options ] [event name]

DESCRIPTION

       By  default,  ophelp  lists  the  available  performance counter options. If you give it a
       symbolic event name, it will return the hardware value (e.g. "ophelp DATA_MEM_REFS").

OPTIONS

       --cpu-type / -c
              Show the events for the given numerical CPU type.

       --check-events / -e [events]
              Check the given space-separated event descriptions for validity.  If the events are
              valid, show which pmu counter each event would be assigned to.

       --callgraph [callgraph_depth]
              Use  the  callgraph  depth to compute the higher minimum sampling intervals for the
              events.
