This command reads the input file and displays an annotated version
of the code. If the object file has debug symbols then the source
code will be displayed alongside assembly code.
If there is no debug info in the object, then annotated assembly is
Input file name. (default: perf.data unless stdin is a fifo)
Only consider symbols in these dsos.
Symbol to annotate.
Don’t do ownership validation.
Be more verbose. (Show symbol address, etc)
Do not show any message. (Suppress -v)
Dump raw trace in ASCII.
Load module symbols. WARNING: use only with -k and LIVE kernel.
Print matching source lines (may be slow).
Don’t shorten the displayed pathnames.
Use the stdio interface.
always, never or auto, allowing configuring color output via the
command line, in addition to via "color.ui" .perfconfig. Use
--stdio-color always to generate color even when redirecting to a
pipe or file. Using just --stdio-color is equivalent to using
Use the TUI interface. Use of --tui requires a tty, if one is not
present, as when piping to other commands, the stdio interface is
used. This interfaces starts by centering on the line with more
samples, TAB/UNTAB cycles through the lines with more samples.
Use the GTK interface.
Only report samples for the list of CPUs provided. Multiple CPUs
can be provided as a comma-separated list with no space: 0,1.
Ranges of CPUs are specified with -: 0-2. Default is to report
samples on all CPUs.
Show raw instruction encoding of assembly instructions.
Interleave source code with assembly code. Enabled by default,
disable with --no-source.
Look for files with symbols relative to this directory.
Set disassembler style for objdump.
Path to objdump binary.
Skip symbols that cannot be annotated.
