vipsprofile — analyze vips profiles

Description

vipsprofile(1) analyzes the file written by the --vips-profile option, calculates some statistics, and draws a graph of evaluation.

Run any vips program with the --vips-profile option to generate a file called "vips-profile.txt". This contains timing information about CPU use, memory use and thread synchronisation.

Run vipsprofile(1) to load this file, calculate some statistics, and draw a graph of evaluation saved to vips-profile.svg. This analysis can help track down performance problems.
