papi_decode - papi_decode utility.
papi_decode - provides availability and detail information for PAPI preset events.
papi_decode is a PAPI utility program that converts the PAPI presets for the existing
library into a comma separated value format that can then be viewed or modified in
spreadsheet applications or text editors, and can be supplied to PAPI_encode_events (3) as
a way of adding or modifying event definitions for specialized applications. The format
for the csv output consists of a line of field names, followed by a blank line, followed
by one line of comma separated values for each event contained in the preset table. A
portion of this output (for Pentium 4) is shown below:
* PAPI_L1_ICM,NOT_DERIVED,,"L1I cache misses","Level 1 instruction cache misses",,BPU_fetch_request_TCMISS
* PAPI_L2_TCM,NOT_DERIVED,,"L2 cache misses","Level 2 cache misses",,BSQ_cache_reference_RD_2ndL_MISS_WR_2ndL_MISS
