S390_RUNTIME_INSTR(2)        System Calls Manual       S390_RUNTIME_INSTR(2)

NAME         top

       s390_runtime_instr - enable/disable s390 CPU run-time instrumentation

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <asm/runtime_instr.h>

       int s390_runtime_instr(int command, int signum);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The s390_runtime_instr() system call starts or stops CPU run-time
       instrumentation for the calling thread.

       The command argument controls whether run-time instrumentation is
       started (S390_RUNTIME_INSTR_START, 1) or stopped
       (S390_RUNTIME_INSTR_STOP, 2) for the calling thread.

       The signum argument specifies the number of a real-time signal.  The
       real-time signal is sent to the thread if the run-time
       instrumentation buffer is full or if the run-time-instrumentation-
       halted interrupt occurred.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, s390_runtime_instr() returns 0 and enables the thread for
       run-time instrumentation by assigning the thread a default run-time
       instrumentation control block.  The caller can then read and modify
       the control block and start the run-time instrumentation.  On error,
       -1 is returned and errno is set to one of the error codes listed
       below.

ERRORS         top

       EINVAL The value specified in command is not a valid command or the
              value specified in signum is not a real-time signal number.

       ENOMEM Allocating memory for the run-time instrumentation control
              block failed.

       EOPNOTSUPP
              The run-time instrumentation facility is not available.

VERSIONS         top

       This system call is available since Linux 3.7.

CONFORMING TO         top

       This Linux-specific system call is available only on the s390
       architecture.  The run-time instrumentation facility is available
       beginning with System z EC12.

NOTES         top

       Glibc does not provide a wrapper for this system call, use syscall(2)
       to call it.
