Bug#754932: RFP: tiptop -- display hardware performance counters for Linux tasks

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org

--- Please fill out the fields below. ---

   Package name: tiptop
        Version: 2.2
Upstream Author: Erven Rohou <erven.rohou@inria.fr>
            URL: http://tiptop.gforge.inria.fr/
        License: GPLv2
    Description: (from the website and README)

Tiptop is a performance monitoring tool for Linux.  It provides a
dynamic real-time view of the tasks running in the system. Tiptop is
very similar to the top utility, but most of the information displayed
comes from hardware counters.

    No root privilege needed
    No patch to OS
    No module to load
    No need to instrument applications
    No need to even restart applications
    Any event supported by the hardware
        some predefined: instructions, cycles, LLC misses (easy)
        any hardware supported event (slightly harder)
    Live mode and batch mode
    Configure file to define counters and screens
    Pretty much like top
