Description : Yet Another Python Profiler
Yappi stands for Yet Another Python Profiler. It supports Multithread/CPU time
CPython standard distribution comes with three profilers. cProfile, Profile
and hotshot. cProfile is implemented as a C module based on lsprof, Profile is
in pure Python and hotshot can be seen as a small subset of a cProfile.
The major issue is that all of these profilers lack support for multi-threaded
programs and CPU time.
If you want to profile a multi-threaded application, you must give an entry
point to these profilers and then maybe merge the outputs. None of these
profilers are designed to work on long-running multi-threaded application. It
is impossible to profile an application retrieve the statistics then stop and
then start later on the fly (without affecting the profiled application).
Note: This package is a new (build-)dependency of python-oslo.service, which
is a key library for OpenStack.
