The libperf library provides an API to access the linux kernel perf
events subsystem.
Following objects are key to the libperf interface:
struct perf_cpu_map:: Provides a CPU list abstraction.
struct perf_thread_map:: Provides a thread list abstraction.
struct perf_evsel:: Provides an abstraction for single a perf event.
struct perf_evlist:: Gathers several struct perf_evsel object and performs functions on all of them.
struct perf_mmap:: Provides an abstraction for accessing perf ring buffer.
The exported API functions bind these objects together.
