Counters is a Mono API for flexible statistics collection
and is used to track different events inside the JIT.
You would typically register an address with the
routine and increment the
counters from your application as you go. At the end of the
program you would call mono_counters_dump which will display
all the registered counters.
If you need more complicated counter computation, a
function can be provided instead of an address. In that case
flag must be ored in the
The types that can be rendered are:
To organize the output, you register also a section where
the counter will be displayed, or one of the following values
when you register your counter:
mono_counters_dump (int section_mask, FILE *outfile)
|section_mask|| The sections to dump counters for|
|outfile|| a FILE to dump the results to|
Displays the counts of all the enabled counters registered.
To filter by variance, you can OR one or more variance with the specific section you want.
Use MONO_COUNTER_SECTION_MASK to dump all categories of a specific variance.
mono_counters_enable (int section_mask)
|section_mask|| a mask listing the sections that will be displayed|
This is used to track which counters will be displayed.
