AMEVCNTR0<n>_EL0, Activity Monitors Event Counter Registers 0, n = 0 - 15

The AMEVCNTR0<n>_EL0 characteristics are:

Purpose

Provides access to the architected activity monitor event counters.

Configuration

AArch64 System register AMEVCNTR0<n>_EL0 bits [63:0] are architecturally mapped to AArch32 System register AMEVCNTR0<n>[63:0] .

AArch64 System register AMEVCNTR0<n>_EL0 bits [63:0] are architecturally mapped to External register AMEVCNTR0<n>[63:0] .

This register is present only when AMUv1 is implemented. Otherwise, direct accesses to AMEVCNTR0<n>_EL0 are UNDEFINED.

Some or all RW fields of this register have defined reset values. These apply only if the PE resets into an Exception level that is using AArch64. Otherwise, RW fields in this register reset to architecturally UNKNOWN values.

Attributes

AMEVCNTR0<n>_EL0 is a 64-bit register.

Field descriptions

The AMEVCNTR0<n>_EL0 bit assignments are:

6362616059585756555453525150494847464544434241403938373635343332

ACNT, bits [63:0]

Architected activity monitor event counter n.

Value of architected activity monitor event counter n, where n is the number of this register and is a number from 0 to 15.

If the counter is enabled, writes to this register have UNPREDICTABLE results.

On a Cold reset, this field resets to 0.

Accessing the AMEVCNTR0<n>_EL0

If <n> is greater than or equal to the number of architected activity monitor event counters, reads and writes of AMEVCNTR0<n>_EL0 are CONSTRAINED UNPREDICTABLE, and the following behaviors are permitted:

  • Accesses to the register are UNDEFINED.
  • Accesses to the register behave as RAZ/WI.
  • Accesses to the register execute as a NOP.
Note

AMCGCR_EL0.CG0NC identifies the number of architected activity monitor event counters.

Accesses to this register use the following encodings:
