Description : pprof is a tool for visualization and analysis of profiling data
pprof is a tool for visualization and analysis of profiling data.
pprof reads a collection of profiling samples in profile.proto format
and generates reports to visualize and help analyze the data. It can
generate both text and graphical reports (through the use of the dot
profile.proto is a protocol buffer that describes a set of callstacks
and symbolization information. A common usage is to represent a set of
sampled callstacks from statistical profiling. The format is described
on the proto/profile.proto (./proto/profile.proto) file. For details on
protocol buffers, see https://developers.google.com/protocol-buffers
Profiles can be read from a local file, or over http. Multiple profiles
of the same type can be aggregated or compared.
If the profile samples contain machine addresses, pprof can symbolize
them through the use of the native binutils tools (addr2line and nm).
This is a dependency of a newer version of golang-google-cloud.
