I would write a small program that does cache ping-pong, and then look
at which events are counted. For the "AMD64" events I would especially
look at DATA_CACHE_REFILLS_FROM_SYSTEM and DATA_CACHE_LINES_EVICTED
with various combinations of cache states for the Unit Mask options.
HYPERTRANSPORT_LINK*_BANDWIDTH are probably also relevant.
