Sysprof, the system-wide profiler that can at fine detail track down and profile kernel and user-space processes on Linux, has seen a new major release with new features added.
Sysprof is great for finding bottlenecks in your software
whether it be a user-space application, kernel driver, or anything in-between.
With the new Sysprof 1.2.0 release for this system-level Linux profiler, there are user-interface improvements, improved tracking of time spent in the Linux kernel, a proper command-line version, performance improvements, and the profiler is now based on the perf_event_open system call.
This useful open-source Linux profiler is available from sysprof.com
. The Sysprof 1.2.0 release announcement from this Saturday can be read on the kernel mailing list
