Linux is the main target for this tool. The support for other Unix like operating systems is limited. Most of the advanced environment setup functionality, like cpu sets or disabling hyper threading, is Linux specific.
What works and what does not¶
perf_statrunner is Linux specific
all other runners should work, but it is uncertain whether the
timerunner requires the
gtimeprogram to be installed
most the environment setup code (i.e. the plugins) don’t work, with the exception of
sleepthat are implemented in python
--sudois only supported on Linux
temci execfor the supported plugins
might not work
temci completion, …
without any constraints
Other Unix like operating systems aren’t currently tested. But there is a chance that they might work as well.
Windows is currently not supported, but
temci report might still work. The Linux subsystem in Windows might
enable the usage of the features that work on Apples OS X.
