Package oprofile

System wide profiler

http://oprofile.sf.net

OProfile is a profiling system for systems running Linux. The
profiling runs transparently during the background, and profile data
can be collected at any time. OProfile makes use of the hardware performance
counters provided on Intel P6, and AMD Athlon family processors, and can use
the RTC for profiling on other x86 processor types.

See the HTML documentation for further details.

General Commands (Section 1)
ocount
ocount is an OProfile tool that can be used to count native hardware events occurring in either a given application, a set of processes or threads, a subset of...
opannotate
opannotate outputs annotated source and/or assembly from profile data of an OProfile session. See oprofile(1) for how to write profile specifications.
oparchive
The oparchive utility is commonly used for collecting profile data on a "target" system for future offline analysis on a different ("host") machine. oparchive...
op-check-perfevents
The small helper program op-check-perfevents determines whether the kernel supports the perf interface and returns a zero exit status if the perf pmu support is...
operf
Operf is the profiler tool provided with OProfile. Operf uses the Linux Performance Events Subsystem and, thus, does not require the obsolete oprofile kernel...
opgprof
opgprof outputs gprof-format profile data for a given binary image, from an OProfile session. See oprofile(1) for how to write profile specifications.
ophelp
By default, ophelp lists the available performance counter options. If you give it a symbolic event name, it will return the hardware value (e.g. "ophelp...
opimport
opimport converts sample database files from a foreign binary format (abi) to the native format.
opreport
opreport outputs binary image summaries, or per-symbol data, from OProfile profiling sessions. See oprofile(1) for how to write profile specifications.
oprofile
OProfile is a profiling system for systems running Linux 2.6.31 and greater. OProfile makes use of the hardware performance counters provided on Intel, AMD, and...
