About documentation of performance monitoring events of E5-4603


Hello all,

I was a little bit confused by the different documents that describing performance monitoring events of chip E5-4603.

I read the following references:

A, Intel® 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer’s Manual, charpter 19, table 19-7

B. a web resource.

the sub-sections : 1)for Intel(R) Microarchitecture Code Name Sandy Bridge   2)for Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor E5-XXXX, because E5-4603 belongs to both of the sections.

C, Vtune events printing function  : amplxe-runss -event-list

I find all the number of the events described :B(very few)<A<C(only the name of the events, no description)

which is complete and correct? Is there any more complete reference introduce all the performance events in E5-4603? 

Or did I totally misunderstand something? Please tell me.

Thank you
