I'm trying out the Profile As -> Basic Data Profiling on a RHEL 4u6 x86_64 system
Processors: 2 x Xeon 2.80GHz 800MHz FSB (HT enabled, 4 threads) - Nocona E0, 64-bit, 90nm, L2: 1MB
It seems to run correctly (the 1st- and 2nd-level cache load misses and loads retired events are sampled okay), but there are several "Preprocessing failed: The passed tb5 file doesn't contain PEBS records" messages in the console, and finally, "No data profiling information to display".
Other PTU functions are working beautifully. Should this be working on my system? I built the driver to match the kernel (2.6.9-67.ELsmp).
