Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  perf kvm stat record/report is not supported on powerpc currently.
  With perf kvm stat record/report analysis of kvm exit events and
  hypervisor calls can be done. The statistics for these events can be
  shown individually for each running VM in the host and can be very
  useful in giving an idea of the performance of a VM under a certain

  This can show how many number of KVM exits have happened during a
  certain period of time. Along with the total number of exits, all the
  exits are grouped according to their specific exit reasons. Also,
  frequency for individual exit reasons is shown. Same can be done with
  hypervisor calls too.

  Updating this with two more features :
