I couldnt get this one working:
[jolsa@krava perf]$ ./perf report --no-call-graph --children --stdio
# Self Children Command Shared Object Symbol
# ........ ........ ....... ............. ..........................
94.47% 94.47% abc abc [.] a
4.74% 4.74% abc ld-2.17.so [.] _dl_map_object_from_fd
0.75% 0.75% abc ld-2.17.so [.] _dl_start
0.04% 0.04% abc ld-2.17.so [.] _start
I was looking for cumulated stdio output without callchain unwinded,
TUI shows it properly as default
