 an user has this question:

Does anyone try the tool "oprofile" in the source code folder
When I use command "oprofile -r start", it will show "Unable to open
cpu_type file for reading Make sure you have done opcontrol --init"
After I finish opcontrol --init, it show the same.
Does I need to set up something first, there is no guide to tell how
to use it.

Does anyone has the answer?

 (1) opcontrol --setup, if it failed, the oProfile is not built in
your android kernel.

   you need to enable the CONFIG_OPROFILE=y CONFIG_PROFILING=y

  (2) If the opcontrol --setup successed. cat /dev/oproflie/cpu_type
check whether it is arm/armv6

       Seems google android supports arvm6 by default.

  (3) opcontrol --event TLB_MISS:150000 (you can change the events)

  (4) echo 1 >/dev/oprofile/enable  to start profiling (seems
"opcontrol --start" not work).

  (5) opcontrol --status ,check whether oprofiled is runing or not

  (6) echo 0 >/dev/oprofile/enable to stop the profiling(seems
opcontrol --stop not work).
      Sample data will be collected to /data/oprofile/samples/current/

I am trying to get OProfile working on Android

I have built the kernel with


However, when I try to run it, it says the oprofiled is not running.
Is there quick way to make sure that oprofiled is running?

# echo 1 >/dev/oprofile/enable

# opcontrol --status

Driver directory: /dev/oprofile

Session directory: /data/oprofile
