+NAME
+----
+perf-daemon - Run record sessions on background
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'perf daemon'
+'perf daemon' [<options>]
+'perf daemon start'  [<options>]
+'perf daemon stop'   [<options>]
+'perf daemon signal' [<options>]
+'perf daemon ping'   [<options>]
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+This command allows to run simple daemon process that starts and
+monitors configured record sessions.
+
+Each session represents one perf record process started with
+control setup (with perf record --control.. options).
+
+These sessions are configured through config file, see CONFIG FILE
+section with EXAMPLES.
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+--config=<PATH>::
+	Config file path, if not perf will check system and default
+	locations (/etc/perfconfig, $HOME/.perfconfig).
+
+-v::
+--verbose::
+	Be more verbose.
+
+
+All generic options are available also under commands.
+
+
+START COMMAND
+-------------
+The start command creates the daemon process.
+
+-f::
+--foreground::
+	Do not put the process in background.
+
+
+STOP COMMAND
+------------
+The stop command stops all the session and the daemon process.
+
+
+SIGNAL COMMAND
+--------------
+The signal command sends signal to configured sessions.
+
+--session::
+	Send signal to specific session.
+
+
+PING COMMAND
+------------
+The ping command sends control ping to configured sessions.
+
+--session::
+	Send ping to specific session.
+
+
+CONFIG FILE
+-----------
+The daemon is configured within standard perf config file by
+following new variables:
+
+daemon.base:
+	Base path for daemon data. All sessions data are
+	stored under this path.
+
+session-<NAME>.run:
+	Defines new record session. The value is record's command
+	line without the 'record' keyword.
+
+Each perf record session is run in daemon.base/<NAME> directory.
+
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+Example with 2 record sessions:
+
+  # cat ~/.perfconfig
+  [daemon]
+  base=/opt/perfdata
+
+  [session-cycles]
+  run = -m 10M -e cycles --overwrite --switch-output -a
+
+  [session-sched]
+  run = -m 20M -e sched:* --overwrite --switch-output -a
+
+
+Starting the daemon:
+
+  # perf daemon start
+
+
+Check sessions:
+
+  # perf daemon
+  [603349:daemon] base: /opt/perfdata
+  [603350:cycles] perf record -m 10M -e cycles --overwrite --switch-output -a
+  [603351:sched] perf record -m 20M -e sched:* --overwrite --switch-output -a
+
+First line is daemon process info with configured daemon base.
+
+
+Check sessions with more info:
+
+  # perf daemon -v
+  [603349:daemon] base: /opt/perfdata
+    output:  /opt/perfdata/output
+    lock:    /opt/perfdata/lock
+    up:      1 minutes
+  [603350:cycles] perf record -m 10M -e cycles --overwrite --switch-output -a
+    base:    /opt/perfdata/session-cycles
+    output:  /opt/perfdata/session-cycles/output
+    control: /opt/perfdata/session-cycles/control
+    ack:     /opt/perfdata/session-cycles/ack
+    up:      1 minutes
+  [603351:sched] perf record -m 20M -e sched:* --overwrite --switch-output -a
+    base:    /opt/perfdata/session-sched
+    output:  /opt/perfdata/session-sched/output
+    control: /opt/perfdata/session-sched/control
+    ack:     /opt/perfdata/session-sched/ack
+    up:      1 minutes
+
+The 'base' path is daemon/session base.
+The 'lock' file is daemon's lock file guarding that no other
+daemon is running on top of the base.
+The 'output' file is perf record output for specific session.
+The 'control' and 'ack' files are perf control files.
+The 'up' number shows minutes daemon/session is running.
+
+
+Make sure control session is online:
+
+  # perf daemon ping
+  OK   cycles
+  OK   sched
+
+
+Send USR2 signal to session 'cycles' to generate perf.data file:
+
+  # perf daemon signal --session cycles
+  signal 12 sent to session 'cycles [603452]'
+
+  # tail -2  /opt/perfdata/session-cycles/output
+  [ perf record: dump data: Woken up 1 times ]
+  [ perf record: Dump perf.data.2020123017013149 ]
+
+
+Send USR2 signal to all sessions:
+
+  # perf daemon signal
+  signal 12 sent to session 'cycles [603452]'
+  signal 12 sent to session 'sched [603453]'
+
+  # tail -2  /opt/perfdata/session-cycles/output
+  [ perf record: dump data: Woken up 1 times ]
+  [ perf record: Dump perf.data.2020123017024689 ]
+  # tail -2  /opt/perfdata/session-sched/output
+  [ perf record: dump data: Woken up 1 times ]
+  [ perf record: Dump perf.data.2020123017024713 ]
+
+
+Stop daemon:
+
+  # perf daemon stop
