Posted on: 11/17/2006 09:49 AM

Sysprof Linux Profiler v. 1.0.7 has been released:

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 1.0.7
--------------------------

- Compile with older kernels
- Fix bug where kernel time could get misreported
