Compile your program -G or -p and then run gprof or prof respectively.
These products are usually on HP systems by default. They will
allow to look at call trees, routine counts, and pc samples.
The tools are not as versatile as VAX PCA but they seem to meet
your demand. You will not get the interactive capabilities, service
calls or page fault measurements that PCA provides.

Thank you.
