43.5.2. Using opreport on a Single Executable

To retrieve more detailed profiled information about a specific executable, use opreport:
opreport <mode> <executable>
<executable> must be the full path to the executable to be analyzed. <mode> must be one of the following:
-l
List sample data by symbols. For example, the following is part of the output from running the command opreport -l /lib/tls/libc-<version>.so:
samples  %        symbol name
12       21.4286  __gconv_transform_utf8_internal
5         8.9286  _int_malloc
4         7.1429  malloc
3         5.3571  __i686.get_pc_thunk.bx
3         5.3571  _dl_mcount_wrapper_check
3         5.3571  mbrtowc
3         5.3571  memcpy
2         3.5714  _int_realloc
2         3.5714  _nl_intern_locale_data
2         3.5714  free
2         3.5714  strcmp
1         1.7857  __ctype_get_mb_cur_max
1         1.7857  __unregister_atfork
1         1.7857  __write_nocancel
1         1.7857  _dl_addr
1         1.7857  _int_free
1         1.7857  _itoa_word
1         1.7857  calc_eclosure_iter
1         1.7857  fopen@@GLIBC_2.1
1         1.7857  getpid
1         1.7857  memmove
1         1.7857  msort_with_tmp
1         1.7857  strcpy
1         1.7857  strlen
1         1.7857  vfprintf
1         1.7857  write
The first column is the number of samples for the symbol, the second column is the percentage of samples for this symbol relative to the overall samples for the executable, and the third column is the symbol name.
To sort the output from the largest number of samples to the smallest (reverse order), use -r in conjunction with the -l option.
-i <symbol-name>
List sample data specific to a symbol name. For example, the following output is from the command opreport -l -i __gconv_transform_utf8_internal /lib/tls/libc-<version>.so:
samples  %        symbol name
12       100.000  __gconv_transform_utf8_internal
The first line is a summary for the symbol/executable combination.
The first column is the number of samples for the memory symbol. The second column is the percentage of samples for the memory address relative to the total number of samples for the symbol. The third column is the symbol name.
-d
List sample data by symbols with more detail than -l. For example, the following output is from the command opreport -l -d __gconv_transform_utf8_internal /lib/tls/libc-<version>.so:
vma      samples  %        symbol name
00a98640 12       100.000  __gconv_transform_utf8_internal
00a98640 1         8.3333
00a9868c 2        16.6667
00a9869a 1         8.3333
00a986c1 1         8.3333
00a98720 1         8.3333
00a98749 1         8.3333
00a98753 1         8.3333
00a98789 1         8.3333
00a98864 1         8.3333
00a98869 1         8.3333
00a98b08 1         8.3333
The data is the same as the -l option except that for each symbol, each virtual memory address used is shown. For each virtual memory address, the number of samples and percentage of samples relative to the number of samples for the symbol is displayed.
-x<symbol-name>
Exclude the comma-separated list of symbols from the output.
session:<name>
Specify the full path to the session or a directory relative to the /var/lib/oprofile/samples/ directory.
