USENIX 2002 Annual Conference - Technical Program Abstract

Simple and General Statistical Profiling with PCT

Charles Blake, Steve Bauer, Laboratory for Computer Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology


The Profile Collection Toolkit (PCT) provides a novel generalized CPU profiling facility. PCT enables arbitrarily late profiling activation and arbitrarily early report generation. PCT usually requires no re-compilation, re-linking, or even re-starting of programs. Profiling reports gracefully degrade with available debugging data.
