I posted this on comp.unix.wizards but got no response.
For some time I have toyed with the idea of writing an interactive
profiler for Unix. That is, instead of running gprof after the program has
finished running, I'd like to set breakpoints and analyze hotspots
1. Does such a beast exist already ?
2. If not, why not? Am I missing something that makes it technically
infeasible on Unix ?
3. Can you point out some references on profilers, and if possible, those
that specifically talk about Unix?
Thanx a lot.
