The Performance Inspector package contains a suite of performance analysis tools for Linux. The package uses a pinned buffer per CPU along with a set of kernel hooks to capture performance related information, and it uses the performance counters provided by the CPUs to measure system events at the pid level. Performance Inspector tools will help you gain a better understanding of the performance of your C/C++/Java applications and the resources they consume. The dynamic version Dpiperf.dynamic does not require kernel to be rebuild if it has profiling support.
Major changes in this release:
- ITrace support for PPC64 and improved coverage on other platforms
- Support for RT Linux
