My professor has asked me to run:
perf stat -e mem-loads,mem-stores ./test
In order for me to find the memory loads and stores for a C file. I'm doing this from within a VirtualBox Linux guest and and problem is that perf is saying this is an invalid or unsupported event, can anyone advise as to what I'm doing wrong here?
invalid or unsupported event: 'mem-loads,'
Run 'perf list' for a list of valid events
Usage: perf stat [<options>] [<command>]
-e, --event <event> event selector. use 'perf list' to list available events
Are perf hardware events available from within a VirtualBox guest?
