dprof2calltree(1) convert perl's DProf profiling data to KCachegrind calltree format


dprof2calltree -f input [ -o output ]


dprof2calltree reads the tmon.out profiling data output by Perl's Devel::DProf profiling package, and converts it into calltree format for use by KCachegrind.

This utility is part of the KDE Software Development Kit.


-f input
Specifies the DProf tmon.out file to convert.
-o output
Write the calltree output to the given file for use by KCachegrind. If omitted, the output will be written to file of the form cachgrind.out.<input>.


If you run a perl script as:

perl -d:DProf yourscript.pl

then this will write profiling data to tmon.out. You can then work with this data in KCachegrind as follows:

dprof2calltree -f tmin.out -o cachegrind.out.foo
kcachegrind cachegrind.out.foo
