Asking a bout how to use vtune to know specfic event

I am using Vtune for MIC and would like to know which event should be considered for counting the number of cycles where no micro-operations is issued, i.e. thread idle time due to un-available resource.

Is it correct if we use FE_Stalled, to count the thread idle time due to un-available resource, which appears in PMU, revision 1.01, July 10, 2012, Doc. 327357-001!

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

There's nothing quite equivalent to UOPS.ISSUED.ANY on this generation of the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor, which is an in-order execution engine.  FE_STALLED isn't quite the same thing, but I'm not sure there's any other available event that would be closer to what you want. AND I would experiment with it first, make sure you can understand and predict the counts it delivers in calculated loads.  And, if you haven't had the opportunity to read this hardware events document, that would be a good place to start.
