Where do I find the "perf-rt" package for use with kernel-rt?

  • Red Hat Enterprise MRG Realtime 2


I'm looking for the perf-rt packages for the RHEL6 kernel-rt-3.0.36-rt57.66.el6rt.x86_64. But I can't find it anywhere.


perf-rt used to be built for older (<= 3.0.18-based) MRG Realtime kernels. They are no longer being built with current kernel-rt packages, the regular perf package of the underlying Red Hat Enterprise Linux product can be used.

Root Cause

The build of perf-rt packages was disabled as part of the resolution of RHBZ#797726.
