I am new to oprofile. So i have some basic doubts. I couldn't understand clearly the User Manual's explanation of --separate option under opcontrol. What does this option exactly do?
Also i came across this example in the user manual
Here, we want to see a profile of the OProfile daemon itself, including when it was running inside the kernel driver, and its use of shared libraries.
# opcontrol --separate=kernel --vmlinux=/boot/2.6.0/vmlinux
