papi_native_avail - provides detailed information for PAPI native events.



papi_native_avail is a PAPI utility program that reports information about the native events available on the current platform. A native event is an event specific to a specific hardware platform. On many platforms, a specific native event may have a number of optional settings. In such cases, the native event and the valid settings are presented, rather than every possible combination of those settings. For each native event, a name, a description, and specific bit patterns are provided.
