The Visual Profile

The Visual Profiler, VProf, is a project developed for optimizing the performance of programs and evaluating algorithm efficiency. It provides routines to collect statistical profiling information and programs to view execution profiles. Profile data is used to generate performance summaries sorted by source code line, by file, and by function.
