Cirron

Cirron measures a piece of Python or Ruby code and report back several performance counters: CPU instruction count, branch misses, page faults and time spent measuring. It uses the Linux perf events interface or @ibireme's KPC demo on OSX.

It can also trace syscalls using strace, Linux only!

Prerequisites

  • Linux with perf events support / Apple ARM OSX
  • C++
  • Python 3.x / Ruby 3.x

Installation

Python

pip install cirron

Ruby

gem install cirron

The wrapper automatically compiles the C++ library (cirronlib.cpp) on first use.

Usage

Performance Counters

Python

$ sudo python
>>> from cirron import Collector
>>> 
>>> # Start collecting performance metrics
>>> with Collector() as collector:
>>>     # Your code here
>>>     print("Hello")
>>> 
>>> # Retrieve the metrics
>>> print(collector.counters)
Counter(time_enabled_ns=144185, instruction_count=19434, branch_misses=440, page_faults=0)

Ruby

$ sudo irb
irb(main):001> require 'cirron'
=> true
irb(main):002* c = Cirron::collector do
irb(main):003*   puts "Hello"
irb(main):004> end
Hello
=> Counter(time_enabled_ns: 110260, instruction_count: 15406, branch_misses: 525, page_faults: 0)

Syscalls

Python

$ sudo python
>>> from cirron import Tracer, to_tef

>>> with Tracer() as tracer:
>>>     # Your code here
>>>     print("Hello")
>>> 
>>> # Retrieve the trace
>>> print(tracer.trace)
>>> [Syscall(name='write', args='1, "Hello\\n", 6', retval='6', duration='0.000043', timestamp='1720333364.368337', pid='2270837')]
>>> 
>>> # Save the trace for ingesting to Perfetto
>>> open("/tmp/trace", "w").write(to_tef(tracer.trace))

Ruby

$ sudo irb
irb> require 'cirron'
=> true
irb> trace = Cirron::tracer do
irb>  # Your code here
irb>  puts "Hello"
irb> end
=> [#<Syscall:0x00007c6c1a4b3608 @args="1, [{iov_base=\"Hello\", iov_len=5}, {iov_base=\"\\n\", iov_len=1}], 2", @duration="0.000201", @name="writev", @pid="2261962", @retval="6", @timestamp="1720285300.334976">]
# Save the trace for ingesting to Perfetto
irb> File.write("/tmp/trace", Cirron::to_tef(trace))
=> 267
