NAME

       perf-timechart - Tool to visualize total system behavior during a workload

SYNOPSIS

       perf timechart record <command>
       perf timechart [<options>]

DESCRIPTION

       There are two variants of perf timechart:

           'perf timechart record <command>' to record the system level events
           of an arbitrary workload.

           'perf timechart' to turn a trace into a Scalable Vector Graphics file,
           that can be viewed with popular SVG viewers such as 'Inkscape'.

OPTIONS

       -o, --output=
           Select the output file (default: output.svg)

       -i, --input=
           Select the input file (default: perf.data unless stdin is a fifo)

       -w, --width=
           Select the width of the SVG file (default: 1000)

       -P, --power-only
           Only output the CPU power section of the diagram

       -p, --process
           Select the processes to display, by name or PID

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

EXAMPLES

       $ perf timechart record git pull

           [ perf record: Woken up 13 times to write data ]
           [ perf record: Captured and wrote 4.253 MB perf.data (~185801 samples) ]

       $ perf timechart

           Written 10.2 seconds of trace to output.svg.
