NAME
     generic_events - generic performance counter events

DESCRIPTION
     The Solaris  cpc(3CPC)  subsystem  implements  a  number  of
     predefined, generic performance counter events. Each generic
     event maps onto a single platform specific event and one  or
     more  optional attributes.  Each hardware platform only need
     support a subset of the total set of generic events.


     The defined generic events are:

     PAPI_br_cn
                     Conditional branch instructions


     PAPI_br_ins
                     Branch instructions taken


     PAPI_br_msp
                     Conditional branch instructions mispredicted


     PAPI_br_ntk
                     Conditional branch instructions not taken


     PAPI_br_prc
                     Conditional  branch  instructions  correctly
                     predicted


     PAPI_br_ucn
                     Unconditional branch instructions


     PAPI_bru_idl
                     Cycles branch units are idle


     PAPI_btac_m
                     Branch target address cache misses


     PAPI_ca_cln
                     Requests for exclusive access to clean cache
                     line
