NAME

       perf - performance analysis tools for Linux

SYNOPSIS

       perf [--version] [--help] COMMAND [ARGS]

DESCRIPTION

       Performance  counters  for  Linux  are  are  a  new  kernel-based subsystem that provide a
       framework for all  things  performance  analysis.   It  covers  hardware  level  (CPU/PMU,
       Performance   Monitoring   Unit)   features  and  software  features  (software  counters,
       tracepoints) as well.

       Each version of the perf tools may depend on new kernel features, so you  must  install  a
       different  version  for  each kernel version.  The perf command will automatically run the
       correct version for the running kernel version.
