Unfortunately this does not seem to fix my issue.

So for that patch, you say you fix metric expression for DRAM_BW_Use, 
which is:

{
  "BriefDescription": "Average external Memory Bandwidth Use for reads 
and writes [GB / sec]",
  "MetricExpr": "( 64 * ( uncore_imc@..._count_read@ + 
uncore_imc@..._count_write@ ) / 1000000000 ) / duration_time",
  "MetricGroup": "Memory_BW",
"MetricName": "DRAM_BW_Use"
},

But this metric expression does not include any alias events; rather I 
think it is just cas_count_write + cas_count_read event count for PMU 
uncore_imc / duration_time.

When I say alias, I mean - as an example, we have event:

     {
         "BriefDescription": "write requests to memory controller. 
Derived from unc_m_cas_count.wr",
         "Counter": "0,1,2,3",
         "EventCode": "0x4",
         "EventName": "LLC_MISSES.MEM_WRITE",
         "PerPkg": "1",
         "ScaleUnit": "64Bytes",
         "UMask": "0xC",
         "Unit": "iMC"
     },

And then reference LLC_MISSES.MEM_WRITE in a metric expression:

"MetricExpr": "LLC_MISSES.MEM_WRITE / duration_time",

This is what seems to be broken for when the alias matches > 1 PMU.

Please check this.

Thanks,
John
