KCachegrind

KCachegrind

KCachegrind is a small software utility that functions as a performance analysis data visualization tool, with the goal of determining the parts of a program that consume the most time during its execution. Therefore, it offers ideal functions, such as: being able to view a complete performance analysis (runtime characteristics) of the applications in various ways, including visualizations of call graphs and source code/disassembler annotations. It is also capable of providing performance analysis generated by the Calltree cache/call simulation tracer, a tool from Valgrind. And finally, among many, it allows the use of Conversion Scripts for OProfile, Perl and PHP.
