+NAME
+----
+perf-irq - Tool to trace/measure hardware interrupts
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+'perf irq' [<options>] {record|report}
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+There are several variants of 'perf irq':
+
+  'perf irq record <command>' to record the irq handler events
+  of an arbitrary workload.
+
+  'perf irq report' to calculate the time consumed by each
+   hardware interrupt processing function.
+
+    Example usage:
+        perf irq record -- sleep 1
+        perf irq report
+
+   By default it shows the individual irq events, including the irq name,
+   cpu(execute the hardware interrupt processing function), time consumed,
+   entry time and exit time for the each hardware irq:
+
+   -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+     Irq name         |  CPU   | Time consume us | Handler entry time | Handler exit time
+   -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
