Build profiling tools and UI

Project description


buildprof is a tool that can generate and view build profiles. It parses the output of the standard command ‘top -b’, and the statistics files generated by ccache > 3.0.

It generates a chart with the cpu, memory usage and ccache hit/miss rate over time.

By passing the mouse cursor over the graph, you can see the process that were running at that time on the machine, and see what’s going on when the cpu is not 100% utilised.


buildprof uses the standard python library and has no other dependancies. It embeds an html5 application to view the results.

sudo pip install buildprof


buildprof -o buildprof_results.html make -j4

This will run your make -j4, and then open a browser with the results.
