Sysprof 0.9
Posted on: 05/23/2005 05:48 AM

Sysprof is a sampling CPU profiler that uses a Linux kernel module to
profile the entire system, not just a single application. Sysprof
handles shared libraries and applications do not need to be
recompiled. In fact they don't even have to be restarted.

Just insert the kernel module and start sysprof.

* Features:
----------------------

- Profiles all running processes, not just a single application
- Has a simple graphical interface
- Shows the time spent in each branch of the call tree
- Profiles can be loaded and saved
- Easy to use: Just insert the kernel module and start sysprof
- Supports Fedora debuginfo packages

* Sysprof 0.9
--------------------------

This is the first released version, but is feature complete and
bug-free enough to be considered a release candidate for sysprof
1.0. Unless serious bugs are reported version 0.9 will soon

become 1.0.

Please report bugs as well as success and failure stories to
