PMSEVFR_EL1, Sampling Event Filter Register

The PMSEVFR_EL1 characteristics are:

Purpose

Controls sample filtering by events. The overall filter is the logical AND of these filters. For example, if E[3] and E[5] are both set to 1, only samples that have both event 3 (Level 1 unified or data cache refill) and event 5 set (TLB walk) are recorded.

Configuration

This register is present only when FEAT_SPE is implemented. Otherwise, direct accesses to PMSEVFR_EL1 are UNDEFINED.

Attributes

PMSEVFR_EL1 is a 64-bit register.

Field descriptions

The PMSEVFR_EL1 bit assignments are:

E[<x>], bit [x], for x = 63 to 48, 31 to 24, 15 to 12

E[<x>] is the event filter for event <x>. If event <x> is not implemented, or filtering on event <x> is not supported, the corresponding bit is RAZ/WI.

E[<x>]Meaning
0b0

Event <x> is ignored.

0b1

Do not record samples that have event <x> == 0.

An IMPLEMENTATION DEFINED event might be recorded as a multi-bit field. In this case, if the corresponding bits of PMSEVFR_EL1 define an IMPLEMENTATION DEFINED filter for the event.

This field is ignored by the PE when PMSFCR_EL1.FE == 0

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

Bits [47:32]

Reserved, RAZ/WI.

Bits [23:19]

Reserved, RAZ/WI.

E[18], bit [18]

When FEAT_SPEv1p1 is implemented and FEAT_SVE is implemented:

Empty predicate.

E[18]Meaning
0b0

Empty predicate event is ignored.

0b1

Do not record samples that have the Empty predicate event == 0.

This bit is ignored by the PE when PMSFCR_EL1.FE == 0.

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


Otherwise:

Reserved, RAZ/WI.

E[17], bit [17]

When FEAT_SPEv1p1 is implemented and FEAT_SVE is implemented:

Partial predicate.

E[17]Meaning
0b0

Partial predicate event is ignored.

0b1

Do not record samples that have the Partial predicate event == 0.

This bit is ignored by the PE when PMSFCR_EL1.FE == 0.

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


Otherwise:

Reserved, RAZ/WI.

Bit [16]

Reserved, RAZ/WI.

E[11], bit [11]

When FEAT_SPEv1p1 is implemented:

Alignment.

E[11]Meaning
0b0

Alignment event is ignored.

0b1

Do not record samples that have the Alignment event == 0.

This bit is ignored by the PE when PMSFCR_EL1.FE == 0.

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


Otherwise:

Reserved, RAZ/WI.

Bits [10:8]

Reserved, RAZ/WI.

E[7], bit [7]

Mispredicted.

E[7]Meaning
0b0

Mispredicted event is ignored.

0b1

Do not record samples that have the Mispredicted event == 0.

This bit is ignored by the PE when PMSFCR_EL1.FE == 0.

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

E[6], bit [6]

When FEAT_SPEv1p2 is implemented:

Not taken.

E[6]Meaning
0b0

Not taken event is ignored.

0b1

Do not record samples that have the Not taken event == 0.

This bit is ignored by the PE when PMSFCR_EL1.FE == 0b0.

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


Otherwise:

Reserved, RAZ/WI.

E[5], bit [5]

TLB walk.

E[5]Meaning
0b0

TLB walk event is ignored.

0b1

Do not record samples that have the TLB walk event == 0.

This bit is ignored by the PE when PMSFCR_EL1.FE == 0.

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

Bit [4]

Reserved, RAZ/WI.

E[3], bit [3]

Level 1 data or unified cache refill.

E[3]Meaning
0b0

Level 1 data or unified cache refill event is ignored.

0b1

Do not record samples that have the Level 1 data or unified cache refill event == 0.

This bit is ignored by the PE when PMSFCR_EL1.FE == 0.

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

Bit [2]

Reserved, RAZ/WI.

E[1], bit [1]

When the PE supports sampling of speculative instructions:

Architecturally retired.

When the PE supports sampling of speculative instructions:

E[1]Meaning
0b0

Architecturally retired event is ignored.

0b1

Do not record samples that have the Architecturally retired event == 0.

This bit is ignored by the PE when PMSFCR_EL1.FE == 0.

If the PE does not support the sampling of speculative instructions, or always discards the sample record for speculative instructions, this bit reads as an UNKNOWN value and the PE ignores its value.

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


Otherwise:

Reserved, UNKNOWN.

Bit [0]

Reserved, RAZ/WI.
