    Phoronix: Oracle's Next-Generation GNU Profiler "gprofng" Is Looking Great For Developers

    Oracle engineers have been working on "gprofng" as a next-generation GNU Profiler that can analyze production binaries. Oracle talked up Gprofng today during the GNU Tools Track as part of Linux Plumbers Conference 2021...

      Unlike the original gprof, gprofng is able to profile production binaries that do not need to be built with any special options or still have the source code available. Unmodified executable can be easily analyzed and a wealth of information provided.
      Hmm. This sounds interesting. Have they done any articles or talks on how this works?

            Are the slides from the talk available? I'd love to learn more, but don't have the time to watch the entire talk.

              Never thought I'd see Oracle and GNU in the same phrase. Not unless there was a "lawsuit" thrown in there as well.

                Is Oracle doing something good? Like, for real? I am surprised, and a bit skeptic.

                    No idea whether gprofng is based on it, but perf relies on hardware and kernel support for sampling without needing modified binaries either.
