This paper describes extensions to the PAPI hardware counter library for virtual environments, called PAPI-V. The extensions support timing routines, I/O measurements, and processor counters. The PAPI-V extensions will allow application and tool developers to use a familiar interface to obtain relevant hardware performance monitoring information in virtual environments.
