macos-profiler

A very basic profiler for Rust on macOS. It uses dtrace under the hood (invoked via shell, no less!) to log function calls every 1000Hz. This can give an approximate amount of information needed to debug CPU issues in your program.

The profiler has no deep cargo integration yet, meaning you'll have to specify the full path to your compiled binaries, but a hypothetical cargo macos-profiler could be able to discover [[bin]] paths more easily.

Usage

cargo install macos-profiler

Then:

macos-profiler time-spent --command ./target/debug/my-binary

Lists functions in order of how much time it spent in your stack hierarchy.

macos-profiler frequency -c ./target/debug/other-binary

Lists functions in order of how much time it spent the top of the stack, relative to all other top functions.

Example

$ cd ripgrep
$ sudo macos-profiler time-spent -c "./target/debug/rg "macos-profiler" /Users/tcr"
info: type ctrl+c to terminate your program and finish profiling.
dtrace: system integrity protection is on, some features will not be available
