It would appear from a few threads in 2012 that xen should support counter access using perf (which is what our tool uses). However, I have not been able to successfully get any results in Dom0 or DomU. I am getting the error in dmesg:

Does this necessarily mean that this CPU will not support PMU at all? Are there any other specific steps I need to take other than including vpmu flag to enable virtual PMU support?

HVM guests should support perf with HW counters but this won't work on PV guests (including dom0) at this time.
