Hi,

I'm trying to get number of L2 cache misses on a system level via:
 sudo pmcstat -S dc-misses -O /tmp/sample.out

However, I'm getting this error:
pmcstat: ERROR: Cannot allocate system-mode pmc with specification "dc- misses": Invalid argument

I'm running 7.1-RELEASE-p3 on:
CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5472 @ 3.00GHz (3004.49-MHz K8- class CPU)
  Origin = "GenuineIntel"  Id = 0x10676  Stepping = 6

avail memory  = 8243294208 (7861 MB)

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Nikola
