Unable to see profile cycles

I am trying to run code coverage profiler to see how many cycles a particular piece of code is taking. I am profiling it in Hexagon Simulator and running the code coverage profiler. I am using following commands

hexagon-sim --profile a.out

hexagon-cov gmon.t_0 -i a.out

But when I see the output of the above command I can see that it contains following lines.

-- Out of range --         6fc08:   00 c0 00 7f     7f00c000     { nop }

-- Out of range --         6fc0c:   00 c0 00 7f     7f00c000     { nop }


I am looking for total cycles for each instruction but it displays "Out of range". Could you please let me know how to get this?

One explanation can be that cycle count is exceeding its limit and can't be printed. In that case, could you please let me know how to get percentages at least?
