Description of problem: libpfm-4.4 should have event names and configurations updates for Intel Haswell, Ivy Bridge, and Sandy Bridge processors backported to it.
There have been a number of updates to the events for the Intel processors since libpfm-4.4 was released. These should be included in the RHEL7 version of libpfm. These include Floating point events for ivy bridge and
The support for various Intel processors added after libpfm 4.4 has been backported to the rhel7 libpfm-4.4.0
As far as testing Michael Petlan has a list of machines that he usually tests on to get some coverage. However, I don't know if we have easy access to the avoton and newer haswell processor. Some of this testing may need to be done by a partner. We might be limited to just doing sanity tests with libpfm's validate_x86.
