CONFIG_RCU_TRACE debugfs Files and Formats
The rcupreempt and rcutree implementations of RCU provide debugfs trace
output that summarizes counters and state. This information is useful for
debugging RCU itself, and can sometimes also help to debug abuses of RCU.
Note that the rcuclassic implementation of RCU does not provide debugfs
trace output.
The following sections describe the debugfs files and formats for
preemptable RCU (rcupreempt) and hierarchical RCU (rcutree).
Preemptable RCU debugfs Files and Formats
This implementation of RCU provides three debugfs files under the
top-level directory RCU: rcu/rcuctrs (which displays the per-CPU
counters used by preemptable RCU) rcu/rcugp (which displays grace-period
counters), and rcu/rcustats (which internal counters for debugging RCU).
The output of "cat rcu/rcuctrs" looks as follows:
CPU last cur F M
0 5 -5 0 0
1 -1 0 0 0
2 0 1 0 0
3 0 1 0 0
4 0 1 0 0
5 0 1 0 0
6 0 2 0 0
7 0 -1 0 0
8 0 1 0 0
ggp = 26226, state = waitzero
The per-CPU fields are as follows:
o "CPU" gives the CPU number. Offline CPUs are not displayed.
o "last" gives the value of the counter that is being decremented
for the current grace period phase. In the example above,
the counters sum to 4, indicating that there are still four
RCU read-side critical sections still running that started
before the last counter flip.
o "cur" gives the value of the counter that is currently being
both incremented (by rcu_read_lock()) and decremented (by
rcu_read_unlock()). In the example above, the counters sum to
1, indicating that there is only one RCU read-side critical section
still running that started after the last counter flip.
o "F" indicates whether RCU is waiting for this CPU to acknowledge
a counter flip. In the above example, RCU is not waiting on any,
which is consistent with the state being "waitzero" rather than
"waitack".
o "M" indicates whether RCU is waiting for this CPU to execute a
memory barrier. In the above example, RCU is not waiting on any,
which is consistent with the state being "waitzero" rather than
"waitmb".
o "ggp" is the global grace-period counter.
o "state" is the RCU state, which can be one of the following:
o "idle": there is no grace period in progress.
o "waitack": RCU just incremented the global grace-period
counter, which has the effect of reversing the roles of
the "last" and "cur" counters above, and is waiting for
all the CPUs to acknowledge the flip. Once the flip has
been acknowledged, CPUs will no longer be incrementing
what are now the "last" counters, so that their sum will
decrease monotonically down to zero.
o "waitzero": RCU is waiting for the sum of the "last" counters
to decrease to zero.
o "waitmb": RCU is waiting for each CPU to execute a memory
barrier, which ensures that instructions from a given CPU's
last RCU read-side critical section cannot be reordered
with instructions following the memory-barrier instruction.
The output of "cat rcu/rcugp" looks as follows:
oldggp=48870 newggp=48873
Note that reading from this file provokes a synchronize_rcu(). The
"oldggp" value is that of "ggp" from rcu/rcuctrs above, taken before
executing the synchronize_rcu(), and the "newggp" value is also the
"ggp" value, but taken after the synchronize_rcu() command returns.
The output of "cat rcu/rcugp" looks as follows:
na=1337955 nl=40 wa=1337915 wl=44 da=1337871 dl=0 dr=1337871 di=1337871
1=50989 e1=6138 i1=49722 ie1=82 g1=49640 a1=315203 ae1=265563 a2=49640
z1=1401244 ze1=1351605 z2=49639 m1=5661253 me1=5611614 m2=49639
These are counters tracking internal preemptable-RCU events, however,
some of them may be useful for debugging algorithms using RCU. In
particular, the "nl", "wl", and "dl" values track the number of RCU
callbacks in various states. The fields are as follows:
o "na" is the total number of RCU callbacks that have been enqueued
since boot.
o "nl" is the number of RCU callbacks waiting for the previous
grace period to end so that they can start waiting on the next
grace period.
o "wa" is the total number of RCU callbacks that have started waiting
for a grace period since boot. "na" should be roughly equal to
"nl" plus "wa".
o "wl" is the number of RCU callbacks currently waiting for their
grace period to end.
o "da" is the total number of RCU callbacks whose grace periods
have completed since boot. "wa" should be roughly equal to
"wl" plus "da".
o "dr" is the total number of RCU callbacks that have been removed
from the list of callbacks ready to invoke. "dr" should be roughly
equal to "da".
o "di" is the total number of RCU callbacks that have been invoked
since boot. "di" should be roughly equal to "da", though some
early versions of preemptable RCU had a bug so that only the
last CPU's count of invocations was displayed, rather than the
sum of all CPU's counts.
o "1" is the number of calls to rcu_try_flip(). This should be
roughly equal to the sum of "e1", "i1", "a1", "z1", and "m1"
described below. In other words, the number of times that
the state machine is visited should be equal to the sum of the
number of times that each state is visited plus the number of
times that the state-machine lock acquisition failed.
o "e1" is the number of times that rcu_try_flip() was unable to
acquire the fliplock.
o "i1" is the number of calls to rcu_try_flip_idle().
o "ie1" is the number of times rcu_try_flip_idle() exited early
due to the calling CPU having no work for RCU.
o "g1" is the number of times that rcu_try_flip_idle() decided
to start a new grace period. "i1" should be roughly equal to
"ie1" plus "g1".
o "a1" is the number of calls to rcu_try_flip_waitack().
o "ae1" is the number of times that rcu_try_flip_waitack() found
that at least one CPU had not yet acknowledge the new grace period
(AKA "counter flip").
o "a2" is the number of time rcu_try_flip_waitack() found that
all CPUs had acknowledged. "a1" should be roughly equal to
"ae1" plus "a2". (This particular output was collected on
a 128-CPU machine, hence the smaller-than-usual fraction of
calls to rcu_try_flip_waitack() finding all CPUs having already
acknowledged.)
o "z1" is the number of calls to rcu_try_flip_waitzero().
o "ze1" is the number of times that rcu_try_flip_waitzero() found
that not all of the old RCU read-side critical sections had
completed.
o "z2" is the number of times that rcu_try_flip_waitzero() finds
the sum of the counters equal to zero, in other words, that
all of the old RCU read-side critical sections had completed.
The value of "z1" should be roughly equal to "ze1" plus
"z2".
o "m1" is the number of calls to rcu_try_flip_waitmb().
o "me1" is the number of times that rcu_try_flip_waitmb() finds
that at least one CPU has not yet executed a memory barrier.
o "m2" is the number of times that rcu_try_flip_waitmb() finds that
all CPUs have executed a memory barrier.
The rcutree implementation of RCU provides debugfs trace output that
summarizes counters and state. This information is useful for debugging
RCU itself, and can sometimes also help to debug abuses of RCU.
The following sections describe the debugfs files and formats.

To implement it in an architecture-neutral way, a new source file,
drivers/base/topology.c, is to export the 4 attributes.
