kcachegrind [ generic-options ] [ -r exec ] [ trace-file ]


KCachegrind is a visualisation tool for the profiling data generated by calltree, a profiling skin for valgrind. Applications can be profiled using calltree without being recompiled, and shared libraries and plugin architectures are supported.

For visualising the output from other profiling tools, several converters are available. On Debian systems these can be found in the kcachegrind-converters package.

This application is part of the KDE Software Development Kit.


Below are the kcachegrind-specific options. For a full summary of options, run kcachegrind --help.
-r exec
