C++ Program Performance Monitor

C++ Program Performance Monitor

Question:
Do you know of a good tool for getting performance data on a pure C++ program?I need a tool that indicates sections of code thatuse the most CPU/memory, etc.

Answer:
Many development environments include a profiling tool that helpsanalyze which functions are called most and how much memory a particularroutine consumes, etc. Check your compiler documentation to see if your compiler’s vendor manufactures anything to help you do that.

The gnu compiler’s suite comes with one such program, called gprof.
