I have never seen any cachegrind reports with processor performance
counters. That doesn't mean it can't do it.
One might interpret this page in such a way that Oracle Studio Analyzer
can capture x86 hardware counters on Linux. But, it is hard to say.
You might consider using OProfile.
http://oprofile.sourceforge.net/news/ It captures processor performance
counters and is free.
