Sysprof Linux Profiler v. 1.0.5
Posted on: 10/30/2006 11:27 PM


Sysprof is a sampling system-wide CPU profiler for Linux.

Sysprof uses a Linux kernel module to profile the entire system, not just an individual application. Sysprof handles threads and shared libraries, and applications do not have to be recompiled or instrumented. In fact they don't even have to be restarted.


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

- Profiles all running processes, not just a single application

- Call graph support showing time spent in each branch of the call tree

- Has a simple graphical interface

- Profiles can be loaded and saved

- Easy to use: Just insert the kernel module and start sysprof

- Supports Fedora debuginfo packages


* Sysprof 1.0.5
--------------------------

- Handle debug binaries with a text offset that differ from the text
offset in the real binary.
