[gem5-users] Re: How to create serial terminal when creating disk images?

This is one of the things I've never had the patience to figure out, some ideas:

  *   investigate in QEMU first as it is much faster
  *   look into busybox's init code

Subject: [gem5-users] How to create serial terminal when creating disk images?

Hi,
I've recently been created a disk image for GEM5 FS mode. However, I have 
encountered some problems.

I download ubuntu root file from: 
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-base/releases/20.04/release/ubuntu-base-20.04.1-base-arm64.tar.gz

And I follow the second method of this website tutorial: 
http://www.gem5.org/documentation/general_docs/fullsystem/disks

Follow the tutorial instructions, I tried to put the following code into 
/etc/init/tty-gem5.conf . However, I found that my operating system root file 
did not have /etc/init directory. But I still created a new file 
/etc/init/tty-gem5.conf.

It is a pity that I encoutered problems when I started this image.

Here is the error message:

[0.697855] Freeing unused kernel memory: 384K
[0.699120] Starting init: /etc/init exists but couldn't execute it (error 
-13)
/bin/sh: 0: can't access tty; job control turned off

How do I create a serial terminal correctly? Is there a problem with the 
operating system files I downloaded?

Thanks in advance!

Kind Regards,

Chao

[gem5-users] Re: File sizes of simulators generated by test script are much larger than those built by manual scons commands

2020-11-02 Thread Ciro Santilli via gem5-users
Yes, I had also previously observed that debug symbols make the huge majority 
of the executable's size, and for some reason much more so in .opt than in 
debug (presumably it takes more information to map back optimized code to 
source).

You can confirm that by using strip gem5.opt or gcc- s during build, which 
leads to binaries of the order of 60Mb.

Subject: [gem5-users] File sizes of simulators generated by test script are 
much larger than those built by manual scons commands


Hi all,



When I ran the test script under $GEM5/tests using command “python main.py run” 
on a machine previously without any gem5 simulator built, the script built 5 
different gem5.opt simulators before running test suites.



However, the file sizes of the simulators are pretty large, shown below. The 
gem5.opt for RISC-V is 4.4GB and failed with error message “cannot allocate 
memory”.

1.8Gbuild/ARM/gem5.opt

858Mbuild/NULL/gem5.opt

4.4Gbuild/RISCV/gem5.opt

1.5Gbuild/X86/gem5.opt

1.5Gbuild/X86_MSI/gem5.opt



On the other hand, the gem5.debug simulation was built using “scons 
build/RISCV/gem5.debug –j 8” and its size is much smaller.

522Mbuild/RISCV/gem5.debug



Are these caused by different compiler or linker settings?



I was surprised by a large number of failed tests because RISCV gem5.opt could 
not run. Hopefully, this could be fixed somehow. Thanks.

[gem5-users] Re: SE Mode and Std::thread

2020-11-02 Thread Ciro Santilli via gem5-users
Daniel, if you manage to reproduce on clean develop, please also open an issue 
at https://gem5.atlassian.net/jira/software/c/projects/GEM5/issues I'd also be 
curious to see if it reproduces on se.py (so I could see if it also happens on 
ARM).

We've had some ARM-specific SE issues e.g. at 
https://gem5.atlassian.net/browse/GEM5-537 but this is X86 so I'm not sure. 
With SyscallAll + ExecAll and some patience most bugs can be found. Presumably 
new instructions are being run in an infinite loop, otherwise simulation would 
reach the end of time. So I would try to determine what that minimal loop is 
and why it won't exit.

Looks like this is related to this change:

I'm a bit behind develop because of custom changes and don't have this patch

Cherry picking this might work, but merging would probably be the best 
solution, if time consuming.

Hey all,

I'm running into a strange issue where threads are not spawning when launched 
with std::thread. It seems to work once, and then I try to launch again using a 
newly allocated thread pointer (after deleting the old one) and it hangs.

Minimal example:

void foo()
{
  printf("Foo alive from tid %lu\n", m5_cpu_id());
  //m5_cpu_id is a pseudo_instruction I added to return tc->cpuId()
}

void main()
{
  printf("Launching foo 1"\n);
  std::thread * mythread = new std::thread(foo,...);
  printf("Done Launching foo 1"\n);

  printf("Joining foo 1"\n);
  myThread->join();
  delete myThread;

  printf("Launching foo 2"\n);
  mythread = new std::thread(foo,...);
  printf("Done Launching foo 2"\n);

  printf("Joining foo 2"\n);
  myThread->join(); //< IT HANGS HERE
  printf("Done Everything!\n");
  delete myThread;
}

__

It works fine with TimingSimpleCPU, but then with DerivO3CPU I get the failure.

Output for  DerivO3CPU:
  Launch 1
  Done Launch 1
  I'm alive on tid 1
  Launch 2
  Done Launch 2

And there it Hangs.

FYI I am using apu_se.py, though with the above minimal example I've managed to 
reproduce the bug with no GPU code (nor even hipcc) involved.

I went back to the original code I found that showed std::thread could be used 
here:
https://www.gem5.org/documentation/learning_gem5/part3/running/

[image.png]

The comment there that -1 is required for SE mode, and then the subsequent 
comment about appeasing SE mode...

What exactly do those comments mean?

I'm going to keep debugging, but if anyone has any suggestions for debug flags 
that could be helpful it would be appreciated. (I'm using SyscallAll and going 
to investigate some of the syscalls SE mode ignores).

I'm wondering if maybe it is calling join() multiple times that might be the 
problem? Though unsure why at this point.

Thanks!

Hi Wenqi. You do still need to call map_m5_mem(), but as you found, now that 
there isn't one baked in call mechanism in the library you need to call the 
version of the function that will use the invocation mechanism you need. The 
header doesn't have declarations for them all, but if you declare your own with 
the same signature and an _addr suffix, you can call that and use the magic 
address based calling mechanism.

Thanks for your help! But just want to confirm this: what I did in the past is 
calling map_m5_mem() in my code first and then call specific m5 functions, and 
it seems to work. The guest in running on KvmCPU.

When I am trying to do the same thing with the new libm5.a, it gave an 
exception (Illegal Instruction), however I haven’t looked into the error 
carefully yet, it may just because for some reason the lib is still trying to 
use the magic instruction interface. But before I proceed any further, just 
want to make sure I was using the correct approach to do this.

Hi Wenqi. The updated libm5.a should be used in basically the same way as the

Hoa, the documentation you've linked to is a little out of date. How can it be

[gem5-users] How to use the memory address version of m5ops such as m5_exit_addr in an external C progam?

2020-10-27 Thread Ciro Santilli via gem5-users
Hi,

I have m5_exit working on a C program at 
https://gem5.googlesource.com/public/gem5-resources/+/refs/heads/stable/src/simple/m5_exit.c#41
 but now I wanted to create one using the memory address version.

We already have a m5_exit_addr symbol defined in the library, but I couldn't 
find it exposed in any headers.

Do I just submit a patch adding all the symbols to include/gem5/m5ops.h, e.g. 
void m5_exit_addr(uint64_t ns_delay); ? Or is there already a way to access 
those that you know of?

If a patch is needed, any clues what would be the best approach? I see that 
currently the magic happens under:

struct DispatchTable
{
#define M5OP(name, func) __typeof__(&::name) name;
M5OP_FOREACH
#undef M5OP

and:

DispatchTable addr_dispatch = {
#define M5OP(name, func) .name = &::M5OP_MERGE_TOKENS(name, _addr),
M5OP_FOREACH
#undef M5OP

so I'm guessing I could add a similar M5OP_FOREACH + __typeof__ hack to 
include/gem5/m5ops.h to avoid repeating each function?

I'm afraid to say we don't have a solution right now, but we suspect it may be 
similar to this bug: https://gem5.atlassian.net/browse/GEM5-332. You can see 
the comments on this bug for more information.

Now that it's on Jira, and a known bug in gem5, we hope we can get to the 
bottom of this and fix it in a future release. Keep track of the Jira ticket 
for progress on this issue.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this is causing you, but as far as I know, 
no one has a solution at this point in time.

Hi all,

My gem5 version is fa70478413e4650d0058cbfe81fd5ce362101994. I'm trying to run 
a multithreaded workload in SE mode, but it's crashing. Here is my very simple 
workload:


#include 

#include 

using namespace std;


int sum[4];


void* thread(void* sum) {

  for (int i = 0; i < 1000; i++)

*((int*)sum) += i;


  return 0;

}


int main() {

  sum[0] = sum[1] = sum[2] = sum[3] = 0;

  pthread_t threads[4];


  for (int tid = 0; tid < 4; tid++)

  pthread_create([tid], NULL, thread, [tid]);


  for (int tid = 0; tid < 4; tid++)

  pthread_join(threads[tid], NULL);


  cout << sum [0] << " " << sum[1] << " " << sum[2] << " " << sum[3] << endl;

  return 0;

}



When I run it with:

build/X86/gem5.opt --debug-flags=PseudoInst configs/example/se.py --cmd=./multi 
--num-cpus=4 --ruby --cpu-type=DerivO3CPU

I get:
panic: panic condition !clobber occurred: EmulationPageTable::allocate: addr

The gem5 PMC cannot control Stack Overflow and GItHub accounts of its
contributors.

If you want those avatars changed, please enter in contact with the
respective moderators of those communities, e.g.:

https://github.com/cirosantilli

If you have an URL in a gem5-controlled project, please provide it.

The gem5 project could choose to ban users based on their political views,
but I would not advise them to do so.

Also keep in mind that this could cut both ways. E.g., what if the PMC
decided to disallow contributions from people who support certain
governments they disagree with?

[gem5-users] Re: [ARM system] Question about the cleassic cache system

2020-08-21 Thread Ciro Santilli via gem5-users
I'm not sure about the cache hierarchy issue.

But about Ruby support, I don't think there's any known ARM specific problem, 
and ARM contributors have been specifically pushing Ruby recently, see e.g. see 
Tiago's CHI announcement: https://www.gem5.org/2020/05/29/flexible-cache.html

Subject: [gem5-users] [ARM system] Question about the cleassic cache system


Hi, ALL

I'm doing some design space exploration work using GEM5.
My work is exploring the different cache structures, using ARM cores, classic 
cache structure, and use parsec-3.0 to simulate the multi-core performance.
My system has 4-level caches, every level using L2XBar to connect. Use big 
little clusters, every cluster has the L2 cache shared by cores in the cluster.

Now I meet some problems in the cache structure as below:

1. If I connect all the clusters to one L3 cache then connect to one L4 cache, 
then the full system run is OK.

2. If I connect big clusters directly to L4 cache, other clusters connect to 
one L3 cache then connect to L4 cache, will see the error below (in 
system.terminal):

/home/root/parsec-3.0
 [0.831546] Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 
aaecd674a901
 [0.831563] Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 
aaecde551e41
 [0.831573] Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 
aaecde527e41

3. If I connect big clusters to one L3, other clusters to another L3, and these 
two L3 caches connect to L4 cache, will have SAME error.

If change all cores to Atomic CPU, will not have the page fault error.

All the 3 experiments use same image (the aarch64-ubuntu-trusty-headless.img 
add parsec), and use automatically generated dtb file.
When instantiation, the 3 structures can be generated successfully.

So are there any limits about classic mode memory system for ARM? For example, 
cannot support more than one L3 caches or asymmetry hierarchies?
Should I using Ruby to replace it?

In Andreas Hansson's 2015 slides, he said Ruby has some compatibility problems 
for ARM.
FSConfig.py also warns that Ruby on ARM is not working properly yet. Has those 
problems solved now?

There are some GIC issues about running the KVM mode, fortunately an engineer

Here are some discussions about the KVM mode for ARM.

Have a look at the source under Eclipse :-) all of those get the
packet data with small variations, but it is raw binary.

To see it as hex you need to convert binary to ASCII hex first. I want
to push a simple patch for this in the near future, but you can do it
manually easily too for now:

It should, how did you observe it being atomic? I'd expect DerivO3CPU
not to ever make atomic requests (like Atomic only makes atomic
requests).

[gem5-users] Re: Memory Addresses in Gem5

2020-08-12 Thread Ciro Santilli via gem5-users
I recommend that you have a look at the source of how AtomicSimpleCPU
does an ifetch under Eclipse. It should be easy to understand
everything quickly from there.

The Packet address is physical (which notably what caches and DRAM
work on), just have a look at the constructor of packet:

Packet(const RequestPtr &_req, MemCmd _cmd)
:  cmd(_cmd), id((PacketId)_req.get()), req(_req),
   data(nullptr), addr(0), _isSecure(false), size(0),
   _qosValue(0), headerDelay(0), snoopDelay(0),
   payloadDelay(0), senderState(NULL)
{
if (req->hasPaddr()) {
addr = req->getPaddr();

So you have to do translation before. Translation sets the physical
address on the Request, which contains both _paddr and _vaddr fields.

Another option is to have a look at how some of the memory tests are doing it.

We have to understand the root cause to be sure, it often happens that memory 
errors are just hidden by random changes. Let's move all discussion to that 
ticket. I've started dumping some logs for it and linked to the ticket BTW.

The error seems to relate to the kernel used. I build a new kernel (gem5: 
Building ARM 
Kernel<https://www.gem5.org/documentation/general_docs/fullsystem/building_arm_kernel>)
 and now I'm able to simulate even more cpus. The kernel i used is the v4.14 
version.

Hi all,

My gem5 project consists of clusters and some cpus in the clusters, simulating 
them in fs mode.
Simulating in atomic mode always works.
While simulating less then 6 cpus works perfectly fine in timing mode, with 
more then 6 the simulation crashes with the error:

panic: panic condition (pkt->needsWritable() != pkt->isInvalidate()) && 
!pkt->req->isCacheMaintenance() occurred: global got snoop WriteReq

--- BEGIN LIBC BACKTRACE ---

At the moment the project uses classic caches. Private L1 and shared L2 caches. 
I didn't test it with L3 caches as the simulation crashes sometimes.
Is it possible that the error occurs because of the classic caches and cache 
coherence?
Might the error vanish when using Ruby?
An L3 cache should also be implemented. Is it difficult to do that in Ruby?

Thank you very much for your help.

Hi All:



I use the scheduleInstStop() function to let the m5.simulate() stop at a point 
instrutions as my ROI start, for example: 1(100M) instrutions, but when 
the simulate stop, I print the instructions from last start simulation to the 
end, the count always exceed my specified instrutions(100M), like 100423403, 
about 0.4% exceeded. If I set to 137579444 in O3 cpu, when simulation stop, 
totalInsts() print 121264766,about 12% instruction number error.



The more detail the CPU is or the less expected instruction we set to 
scheduleInstStop() , the more error rate the result is.

Can the scheduleInstStop() function to stop simulate at an accurate instrutions 
count?



Below is my experiment data:

SP means each ROI segment number

WT means weight each SP

KVM FF INSTS means expected fastforward instrutions  set to shceduleInstsStop 
in KVM CPU and KVM FF INSTS REAL means actural instructions when simulation 
stopped.

Thes same as DETAIL WARMUP INSTS and DETAIL WARMUP INSTS REAL, ROI START REAL

DETAIL SIM INSTS REAL means actural instructions when simulation stopped.

2020-07-28 Thread Ciro Santilli via gem5-users
Welcome back Nathanael!

We put great importance on ARM Linux kernel boot, and we try to make it so that 
it either works or at least we have a bug report for it.

I reproduce the problem with VExpress_GEM5_V2 but not VExpress_GEM5_V1, opening 
a but for V2 at: https://gem5.atlassian.net/browse/GEM5-706

Besides that, some notes:

O3_ARM_v7a_3: does not sound like a good idea for aarch64 since v7 in name, not 
sure it has all functional units required.

--dtb-file is not needed anymore unless you are hacking the DTB manually. Just 
remove that option to use DTB auto-generation which is more likely to work.

The newly setup nightlies (thanks Bobby!) contain a two core O3 test that 
passed yesterday:

Subject: [gem5-users] Current status of gem5 capabilities regarding multicores 
full system simulation


Hi all,



After a few years away, I’m back to gem5. I have to say a lot of things have 
changed, for the better, thank you all!



I’m trying to assess what is the current state of gem5 regarding simulating 
configurations with multiples cores in a full system environment with the 
different cpu models.

Especially with the Arm architecture and the classic memory model in a full 
system simulation using the O3CPU model. And what happens if you add SMT on top 
of that.

I’ve looked at this page: https://www.gem5.org/documentation/benchmark_status/, 
but from what I can infer, those results are only valid for X86.



I’ve tried for example to boot linux (using the kernel provided here: 
http://dist.gem5.org/dist/current/arm/aarch-system-201901106.tar.bz2 and the 
disk image here: 
http://dist.gem5.org/dist/current/arm/disks/aarch64-ubuntu-trusty-headless.img.bz2)
 but without success.

But I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong or if I’m trying to do something 
that is unsupported for the moment.



I’m using gem5 version v20.0.0.2 and here is my command line:

$ build/ARM/gem5.opt configs/example/fs.py --kernel=binaries/vmlinux.arm64 
--machine-type=VExpress_GEM5_V2 
--dtb-file=system/arm/dt/armv8_gem5_v2_4cpu.dtb 
--disk-image=aarch64-ubuntu-trusty-headless.img --cpu-type=O3_ARM_v7a_3 
--caches --l2cache -n 4



I get the following error: Assertion `reqLookupResult.it->first == line_addr' 
failed.

I get the same error using only one core (–n 1). I’ve also tried with the

the same error.

Why wouldn't it work :-)? Have you tried/how it fails? How did
execution terminate Ctrl + C or a guest event?

[gem5-users] Re: Need help in compiling the kernel

2020-07-22 Thread Ciro Santilli via gem5-users
To compile kernel see e.g.: 
https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/192/how-do-i-cross-compile-the-kernel-on-a-ubuntu-host
 but replace arm with arm64 and the compile with the aarch64 one for 64-bit 
arm. All other ISAs are analogous.

The ARM configs are in-tree of the official arm gem5 kernel fork e.g.: 
https://gem5.googlesource.com/arm/linux/+/refs/heads/gem5/v4.15/arch/arm64/configs/gem5_defconfig

The patch at https://www.mail-archive.com/gem5-users@gem5.org/msg06169.html 
contains changes to arch/arm, so it will only work for arm. You could try to 
port. The question then is why it wasn't merged. Maybe CC. Andreas Sandberg.

Subject: [gem5-users] Need help in compiling the kernel

Hi all,

I am trying to get the PID information from Processinfo: :pid . I got stuck at 
the panic which says 'thread info not compiled into kernel'. I have been 
looking into older posts regarding this.

https://lists.gem5.org/archives/list/gem5-users@gem5.org/thread/MLWTK3SQMOVZ5IKLVV2L24IVPFA5TTLJ/#MLWTK3SQMOVZ5IKLVV2L24IVPFA5TTLJ

They say we have to recompile the kernel adding the thread info structure into 
it. I have never compiled a kernel before. Can anyone help me on how to do this?

I found a patch here for the kernel:
https://www.mail-archive.com/gem5-users@gem5.org/msg06169.html
It says it is for ARM. Will the kernel patches be specific for ISAs? Also, how 
can I apply this patch?
Any comments are welcome.
Thanks for your time.

Thanks,
Saideepak.

[gem5-users] Re: Benchmark terminating early

2020-07-13 Thread Ciro Santilli via gem5-users
SE I suppose? It seems that the benchmark ends normally with an exit
syscall, I would start by looking at --debug-flags SyscallBase to
double check that.

Then if that is the case, the only explanation is that some value is
getting corrupted somewhere due to a gem5 bug. So I would try to: 1)
compare traces from an Atomic and O3 run 2) GDB into the GDB stub to
see what leads to that exit being called.

Subject: [gem5-users] ARM full-system simulation error during checkpoint: 
rcu_preempt detected stalls on CPUs/tasks

Hi,

I am currently running a 32-bit ARM full-system simulation. After I boot up the 
OS on the simulated system, I take a checkpoint.

This worked fine before, but after I made some changes to the DRAM controller 
code, the checkpoint stalls and I get this error message in the simulated 
console:

INFO: rcu_preempt detected stalls on CPUs/tasks: { 2} (detected by 0, t=2102 
jiffies, g=4294967009, c=4294967008, q=255)

(A huge log of CPU backtraces follow this error message.)

Has anyone run into similar issues before? I am a bit lost on where to start 
debugging.

Thanks,
Jiwon

[gem5-users] Re: 2 level TLB in ARM Full System with Ruby

2020-07-08 Thread Ciro Santilli via gem5-users
Shehab, sorry for the delay, I had to check a few things about this,

First, are you aware that there is a not-yet-merged patch that implements a two 
level TLB at: 
https://github.com/giactra/gem5/commit/3022ecc8a06a9182b2cf1936941901a785c1b21d 
?

It hasn't been merged because we noticed that it broke Linux boot I think. But 
we would like to merge it in the following months.

I'm not sure why Ruby vs classic would matter since the TLB sits behind caches 
anyways? I believe that model will work for either classic or Ruby.

Hello All,

I was wondering if there is a way to simulate a system with 2 levels of TLBs in 
full system simulation with ruby for ARM?

I have seen other examples that use the classical memory model and use a cache 
as the second level TLB. Is there something similar that can be done in Ruby 
memory system. Can I use a standalone RubyCache as the second level TLB?

Thank you very much in advance.

[gem5-users] Re: What is miscellaneous register

2020-07-08 Thread Ciro Santilli via gem5-users
Also, in ARM more specifically, you can see miscregs at
https://github.com/gem5/gem5/blob/cc3e12b504c20b3bc78db52059d3f4f9b02dfbe8/src/arch/arm/miscregs.hh#L56

Most are what the ARM manuals call "System Registers", but a few
others are just convenient ways to implement other ISA features like
e.g. MISCREG_LOCKADDR for LLSC.

I'm not sure about the TLB part, but
configs/example/arm/fs_bigLITTLE.py in tree already showcases two
types of cores and is maintained, so maybe you can take that as a
starting point and see how TLBs are attached and modify that for one
of the set of cores.

[gem5-users] Re: How to modify the simulator to load shared libs

2020-06-09 Thread Ciro Santilli via gem5-users
--redirects /lib64=/path/to/where/you/symlinked/everything

The linker will search in /lib64 normally, then gem5 will redirect
that file read to the path with all symlinks.

2020-06-09 Thread Ciro Santilli via gem5-users
One thing to try if you are desperate: symlink every needed shared
library into a directory, and then redirect /lib64 or that directory.
I'm pretty sure this should work.

I'm not sure why LD_LIBRARY_PATH does not work. I would dig dieeper
and try to understand that, theoretically it feels like it should
work.

2020-06-08 Thread Ciro Santilli via gem5-users
--redirects can be used multiple times. But not 100% sure it will be
able to replace LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Just one thing worth trying along
--redirects /path/in/ld/libray/path=/usr/lib --env does change env
vars, but not 100% sure is it enough to make LD_LIBRARY_PATH work. In
theory it might, but not sure.

[gem5-users] Re: Newly copied files are truncated in gem5 FS mode

2020-06-04 Thread Ciro Santilli via gem5-users
Are you mounting and modifying the disk on the host while gem5 is
using it at the same time? That likey cannot work because the Linux
kernel representation of guest and host will differ. Also gem5 does
not write back to disk.

The file sharing mechanisms I know to modify guest visible files from
host easily are:

- use a Secondary disk
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/50862906/how-to-attach-multiple-disk-images-in-a-simulation-with-gem5-fs-py/60210181#60210181
- 9P summarized at: https://cirosantilli.com/linux-kernel-module-cheat/#9p
- you could also do it with m5 readfile

It does look like your host's library is not compatible with whatever
was used to compile that C hello world.

You can't in general download and run dynamically linked programs
built for other toolchains, you either have to build it yourself
(often the easiest thing to do) or somehow obtain a compatible
toolchain.

OK, also quick grep in kernel code and we can see that -8 and -13 are
the same as exec syscall error numbers:

#define ENOEXEC 8 /* Exec format error */
#define EACCES 13 /* Permission denied */

not 100% sure what those mean, but worth looking into as well.

No worries. I would mount the image on host and ensure that the init
you think is there is actually there, and that it seems to be right
filetype (ISA is ARM, is executable, etc.). And ensure that you are
pointing to it with init= kernel CLI parameter. If you don't
understand from that, GDB step debug the kernel at that point and then
it will be easy to see which inits the kernel is trying and why it
skips yours.

Can you also try to use the full path to vmlinux.arm64 instead of just
basename? I suspect it is currently searching for it on M5_PATH
(because not slashes in the path) and finding some broken image there.
Better still, get rid of M5_PATH altogether if possible.

My full non minimized CLI with gem5 b1623cb2087873f64197e503ab8894b5e4d4c7b4 is:

I don't know exactly what is going on, but I've tested
aarch-system-201901106/binaries/vmlinux.arm64 in fs.py and it worked
fine.

So the exact same script works with the old kernel but not new one?
Are you sure that the kernel exists at that path? Also try to GDB/PDB
debug it a bit.

Try libguestfs-tools:

It is the easiest method. I think it boots QEMU, mounts the image, and
does the resizing operations for you.

You may need to add sudo to commands due to this bug:

Re: [gem5-users] Running YCSB in Gem5 FS

2020-04-17 Thread Ciro Santilli
I would first try to be 100% certain what are the missing instructions
by looking at gem5 --debug-flags ExecAll logs and objdump.

Then I would try to implement the instructions, don't be put off, they
will likely be very similar to other existing ones which you can copy
from, and you can always ask for help on more specific points.

Re: [gem5-users] Running YCSB in Gem5 FS

2020-04-14 Thread Ciro Santilli
You have to try and debug it further to narrow down the exact
operation gem5 seems to be doing wrong (--debug-flags ExecAll, GDB
into guest).

This could be easy to spot, or extremely difficult if the divergence
happened way earlier in execution before the crash, but I don't see an
alternative.

One possible approach especially for single threaded execution is to
try and compare QEMU ExecAll logs to QEMU instruction traces.

Re: [gem5-users] Double PseudoInst commands while running Parsec

2020-04-12 Thread Ciro Santilli
If no one has any better ideas, I'd try to use GDB on the gem5
executable itself, turn on ExecAll logging, and break on the stat dump
part of the code and see where both calls come from. Also consider
Mozilla rr reverse debugging if it seems that reverse stepping could
help.  Not ideal, but works every time with enough staring :-)

Can you double check with aarch64-linux-gnu-objdump that the binary
really only contains a single pseudoop? Maybe it is just an
instrumentation bug that doubles it up.

I would also recommend that you try to correlate --debug-flags ExecAll
or GDB the guest executable around the pseudoop point to narrow down
what is happening.

Not sure I understand, but one cycle can have multiple events. This
can be seen clearly from logs as recommended below.

Maybe there's something I don't know, but I think all events are
instantaneous. Everything that is not instantaneous is done by
scheduling another event in the future.

--debug-flags Event,ExecAll gives good information. Not fully visual,
but makes it possible to understand everything with a bit of staring.

Re: [gem5-users] Busybox on ARM SE mode

There is an implemented syscall (setgid), you have to either implement
it, or ignore it (grep and modify the source there are many already
ignored) if that is not likely to matter. See also:

Re: [gem5-users] Full System: Issue with gem5init script

2020-04-03 Thread Ciro Santilli
I would suggest that you try to run it on QEMU as well where things
will go much faster and to try and that will potentially decide if it
is a gem5 bug or not if it woks on QEMU.

Then if it does not work on QEMU either, try extracting the init
problem from gem5 and asking on a community that might know more about
it.

Re: [gem5-users] Run APK on Gem5

2020-03-25 Thread Ciro Santilli
You have to either fully boot Android  on fs.py or find some userland
setup which I don't know about for SE.

I don't have a fully automated Android boot setup, so just try it out
and tell if it fails and how.

For plain Java, it is much more likely that you will be able to run in
SE: but will need to implement some missing syscalls, might be easy:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/58399259/running-java-programs-in-gem5or-any-language-which-is-not-c
and for sure booting Ubuntu and running it there in FS will work.

Hello All,

I am trying to run the same experiment (ARM full system with RUBY 
MESI_Three_level that boots from checkpoint) on two different machines. It 
terminates successfully on one but runs into assertion failure on the other.

This is the terminating message:
Addr Request::getPaddr() const: Assertion `privateFlags.isSet(VALID_PADDR)' 
failed

I tried running with the Exec debug flag and comparing both traces. This is the 
difference I found:

With Ubuntu, I would use my own minimal init rather than the super

Then you can m5 checkpoint and restore as discussed elsewhere.

Re: [gem5-users] Fw: Asim benchmarks on gem5

2020-02-21 Thread Ciro Santilli

How to extract files from images can be found easily by Googling.

But I would instead recommend that you actually build/install the app 
yourself to know what you are actually getting. And in that case, yes, 
QEMU is possibly your best option in that case, as it can alter the disk 
image.

thoughts:

- those instructions are like large part of the wiki old and may have
stopped working --machine-type=VExpress_EMM is not recommended anymore,
the default and recommended and often tested platform is VExpress_GEM5_V1
- try one of the newer kernels
- is it really representative to run experiments on 32-bit arm now that

I have followed the instructions provided in the gem5.org website to run
the Moby benchmarks on gem5 as follows:

1. Downloaded the Asimbench from
https://bitbucket.org/yongbing_huang/asimbench/downloads/ which contains
the following folders and files:
1. asimbench_android_arm_kernel :
vmlinux.smp.ics.arm.asimbench.2.6.35
2. asimbench_boot_scripts : contains the rcs scripts for
different benchmarks
3. asimbench_disk_image :
ARMv7a-ICS-Android.SMP.Asimbench-v3.img; sdcard-1g-mxplayer.img

2. I have used the "armv7_gem5_v1_1cpu.dtb" and "boot_emm.arm" binaries
downloaded from http://www.gem5.org/dist/current/arm/
aarch-system-20180409.tar.xz.
<http://www.gem5.org/dist/current/arm/aarch-system-20180409.tar.xz>

3. Made the following changes in the config/common/FSConfig.py :

def makeArmSystem(..)
.
self.cf0 = CowIdeDisk(driveID='master')
self.cf2 = CowIdeDisk(driveID='master')
self.cf0.childImage(mdesc.disk())
self.cf2.childImage(disk("sdcard-1g-mxplayer.img"))
# Old platforms have a built-in IDE or CF controller. Default to
# the IDE controller if both exist. New platforms expect the
# storage controller to be added from the config script.
if hasattr(self.realview, "ide"):
#self.realview.ide.disks = [self.cf0]
self.realview.ide.disks = [self.cf0, self.cf2]
elif hasattr(self.realview, "cf_ctrl"):
#self.realview.cf_ctrl.disks = [self.cf0]
self.realview.cf_ctrl.disks = [self.cf0, self.cf2]
else:
self.pci_ide = IdeController(disks=[self.cf0])
pci_devices.append(self.pci_ide)
...

4. Used the following command:

Re: [gem5-users] ARM DerivO3CPU assertion failed

2020-02-21 Thread Ciro Santilli
I observe the following behavior on se.py ARM and X86, which depends on 
--restore-with-cpu. I have used a minimal userland executable that only 
does two things in assembly: m5 checkpoint and m5 exit (total of only 5 
instructions in aarch64)


@Jason: can you confirm the difference between se.py --restore-with-cpu 
and --cpu-type during a checkpoint restore (and if any of the outcome 
below are buggy or not)? At 
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/49011096/how-to-switch-cpu-models-in-gem5-after-restoring-a-checkpoint-and-then-observe-t 
it was mentioned that --restore-with-cpu
should be the old CPU (defaults to AtomicSimpleCPU), and --cpu-type the 
new CPU, is that correct? Asking because I have observed less failures 
if I set --restore-with-cpu to equal --cpu-type.


I'll open/update clear bugs with the test binaries for any behavior 
which is not correct.


== Default Build

Restore with: --cpu-type DerivO3CPU
Outcome: gem5 crashes: panic: Attempted to execute unknown instruction 
(inst 0x)


Restore with: --cpu-type DerivO3CPU --restore-with-cpu DerivO3CPU
Outcome: works

== MESI_Three_Level build

Checkpoint run with: --ruby
Outcome: hangs forever when taking the checkpoint.

Checkpoint run at the commit before 
bb94296373dde1d0ce971ee58ad111f4225c425e (which 
https://gem5.atlassian.net/projects/GEM5/issues/GEM5-331 claims broke 
Ruby checkpointing on MOESI_hammer):
Outcome: "panic: Runtime Error at MESI_Three_Level-L0cache.sm:249: 
Invalid RubyRequestType." This is the correct outcome because 
MESE_Three_Level does have flush operations which are needed to create 
checkpoints.


Checkpoint run: without --ruby
Restore run: --ruby --cpu-type DerivO3CPU
Outcome: gem5 crashes with: build/ARM/sim/port.hh:131: void 
Port::takeOverFrom(Port*): Assertion `old->isConnected()' failed.


Checkpoint run: without --ruby
Restore run: --ruby --cpu-type DerivO3CPU --restore-with-cpu DerivO3CPU
Outcome: works

Checkpoint run on a C hello world without m5ops: --fast-forward 1000 
--ruby --cpu-type DerivO3CPU --restore-with-cpu DerivO3CPU
Outcome: build/ARM/sim/port.hh:131: void Port::takeOverFrom(Port*): 
Assertion `old->isConnected()' failed.


== MOESI_hammer build

Same as MESI_Three_Level, except that the checkpoint with --ruby works 
before bb94296373dde1d0ce971ee58ad111f4225c425e as expected.

Re: [gem5-users] CPU scheduler

2020-02-21 Thread Ciro Santilli
A bit more precisely, every fork syscall starts on a new free CPU. If
there are no new free CPUs, the call fails in the guest. Once the
thread ends, the CPU is freed and becomes available for new threads.

Re: [gem5-users] Simulation does not stop, SE mode, 2 cpus, DerivO3CPU, ruby memory

2020-02-18 Thread Ciro Santilli
Hi Arun,

"I started using ruby memory model after reading from gem5 email
archive that classic memory does not work with multicore DerivO3CPU.":
I didn't know this, where was this mentioned? I have just run an ARM
pthread hello world on DerivO3CPU 2 cores and it worked on master.

I reproduce your problem on X86 DerivO3CPU classic but not ARM
DerivO3CPU. But a pthread hello world (single binary under --cmd that
spanws threads) with 2 CPUs worked, I don't know the cause. If no one
knows about this issue, you need to try and debug it :-)

I would also open a ticket for this bug at
https://gem5.atlassian.net/browse/GEM5 and move all discussion there.

Demangle C++ by piping trough c++filt and find exact line with

Also try to run the program through GDB to get more visibility on

Full system or syscall emulation? Always give full gem5 CLI :-)

If syscall emulation and the binary is dynamically linked, try to 
produce a statically linked version of it, since this seems dynamic 
loader related.

Re: [gem5-users] Zero cost print for debugging/profiling code in se.py

2020-01-10 Thread Ciro Santilli
You could hack up custom m5op magic instructions easily by copying
existing ones, but I think it still takes up a memory fetch/decode.

Better than that, only if you hack a way to do something when a given
PC is reached. Maybe have a look at how Linux detects panics by
reading the PC of the panic symbol and try to adapt something similar.

The linked documentation runs an arbitrary benchmark of your choice.
You just have to add SPEC CPU to the image yourself as explained
there. I can't fully automate SPEC CPU build because it is closed source.

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe that in general things which are not
architecturally visible can be switched safely.

If it is visible, you have to be careful that the software might
expect one state previously read, but now the hardware suddenly
changed to a new one.

Also note that cache sizes are not currently exposed to the guest:

Re: [gem5-users] ARM Cortex modelling

2019-12-11 Thread Ciro Santilli
An overview of CPU models can be found at:
https://cirosantilli.com/linux-kernel-module-cheat#gem5-cpu-types

Some considerations:

- O3_ARM_v7a was created in 2012, but not by ARM Holding directly.
Cortex-R8 is from 2016. There is no ARM holding O3 particularization
currently, so it is very likely that extra modelling would be needed
there for reasonably correlated simulations.
- The HPI CPU is implemented by ARM Holdings, but note that it was
described by ARM publicly as "The HPI CPU timing model is tuned to be
representative of a modern in-order Armv8-A implementation.", and it
was released in 2017, while A53 is from 2012, so nothing guarantees
that they match.

Therefore, although you have possibly the "best out of the box
options", there is no guarantee that they will be "good enough".

Also, the information to make highly accurate ARM models isn't
generally publicly available, it all depends on how accurate you need
to be and good your guesses are.

Re: [gem5-users] Bug when using mutex in ARM SE

2019-11-12 Thread Ciro Santilli
Oi Rafael,

Thanks for the detailed report.

I don't think there is any advantage of using the pthread library currently, at 
least on ARM.

I reproduce on e96ccec8159f91d60bed8342184fb969b06eaf4f Ubuntu 19.04, but only 
with Ruby.

Without Ruby and everything else the same, it works.

What makes you think that this is a syscall deadlock bug rather than a Ruby 
bug, considering that the error message "panic: Page table fault when accessing 
virtual address 0" suggests a memory error?

Worth noting that there was a more or less recent SE deadlock ARM fix at: 
https://gem5-review.googlesource.com/c/public/gem5/+/21606

Subject: [gem5-users] Bug when using mutex in ARM SE

Hello everyone!

I'm trying to use a program that uses mutex, but it was entering in deadlock. 
It was using standard mutex and not pthread library, so first I tried changing 
it to the pthread mutex. It was still entering in deadlock.

After this I cloned a new clean gem5 and compiled it to run some tests. After 
running the standard tests for pthreads in ARM 64 I had some bugs. Full gem5 
output below. Does anyone know if I can fix this?

Thank you in advance, Rafael Alevato.

Are you putting your function definitions in the headers? If so, you
