pprof2calltree(1) convert APD profiling data to KCachegrind calltree format


pprof2calltree -f input


pprof2calltree reads the pprof profiling data output by APD (http://pecl.php.net/apd/), and converts it into calltree format for use by KCachegrind.

This utility is part of the KDE Software Development Kit.


-f input
Specifies the APD pprof trace file to convert. This generally has a name of the form pprof.XXXXX.Y. The calltree output for KCachegrind will then be written to the file cachegrind.out.XXXXX.Y.


Suppose you profile a script with APD and obtain the pprof trace file pprof.12345.1. You can then work with this data in KCachegrind as follows.

pprof2calltree -f pprof.12345.1
kcachegrind cachegrind.out.12345.1
