An unexpected perf feature

A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
I would be interested to know about pre-existing top variants that give information as simple to understand as the pie chart found in the article. Could you please name (at least) one?
I would also be interested to understand why Nackall had to write some kernel patches if such simple information was already available. Any clue?

I think you missed the point. dberkholz isn't saying there is already a top variant that has all the features of smem. He's suggesting it would have been better to add the features to one of the existing ones than to create a separate program.
