PMOVSSET_EL0, Performance Monitors Overflow Flag Status Set register

The PMOVSSET_EL0 characteristics are:

Purpose

Sets the state of the overflow bit for the Cycle Count Register, PMCCNTR_EL0, and each of the implemented event counters PMEVCNTR<n>.

Configuration

External register PMOVSSET_EL0 bits [31:0] are architecturally mapped to AArch64 System register PMOVSSET_EL0[31:0] .

External register PMOVSSET_EL0 bits [31:0] are architecturally mapped to AArch32 System register PMOVSSET[31:0] .

PMOVSSET_EL0 is in the Core power domain. RW fields in this register reset to architecturally UNKNOWN values. These apply on a Warm or Cold reset. The register is not affected by an External debug reset.

Attributes

PMOVSSET_EL0 is a 32-bit register.

Field descriptions

The PMOVSSET_EL0 bit assignments are:

313029282726252423222120191817161514131211109876543210
CP<n>, bit [n]

C, bit [31]

Cycle counter overflow set bit.

CMeaning
0b0

When read, means the cycle counter has not overflowed since this bit was last cleared. When written, has no effect.

0b1

When read, means the cycle counter has overflowed since this bit was last cleared. When written, sets the cycle counter overflow bit to 1.

PMCR_EL0.LC controls whether an overflow is detected from unsigned overflow of PMCCNTR_EL0[31:0] or unsigned overflow of PMCCNTR_EL0[63:0].

On a Warm reset, this field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.

P<n>, bit [n], for n = 0 to 30

Event counter overflow set bit for PMEVCNTR<n>_EL0.

If PMCFGR.N is less than 31, bits [30:PMCFGR.N] are RAZ/WI.

P<n>Meaning
0b0

When read, means that PMEVCNTR<n>_EL0 has not overflowed since this bit was last cleared. When written, has no effect.

0b1

When read, means that PMEVCNTR<n>_EL0 has overflowed since this bit was last cleared. When written, sets the PMEVCNTR<n>_EL0 overflow bit to 1.

If ARMv8.5-PMU is implemented, MDCR_EL2.HLP and PMCR_EL0.LP control whether an overflow is detected from unsigned overflow of PMEVCNTR<n>_EL0[31:0] or unsigned overflow of PMEVCNTR<n>_EL0[63:0].

On a Warm reset, this field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.

Accessing the PMOVSSET_EL0

Note

SoftwareLockStatus() depends on the type of access attempted and AllowExternalPMUAccess() has a new definition from Armv8.4. Refer to the Pseudocode definitions for more information.

PMOVSSET_EL0 can be accessed through the external debug interface:

ComponentOffsetInstance
PMU0xCC0PMOVSSET_EL0

This interface is accessible as follows:

  • When IsCorePowered(), !DoubleLockStatus(), !OSLockStatus(), AllowExternalPMUAccess() and SoftwareLockStatus() access to this register is RO.
  • When IsCorePowered(), !DoubleLockStatus(), !OSLockStatus(), AllowExternalPMUAccess() and !SoftwareLockStatus() access to this register is RW.
  • Otherwise access to this register returns an Error.
