Software Development with Linux

More strace for fun and profit

MON, 01 MAR 2010

Two weeks ago I discussed about Valgrind and strace, which are two great tools that every Linux software developer should be familiar with.

If you are using or want to use strace for IO profiling, you will be interested by Strace Analyzer.  This is a Perl application which take the output of strace to provide you a profile of the IO operations done by your application.

Check IO Profiling of Applications from Linux Magazine for a great introduction this to tool.

Do you know other tools which can be used for IO profiling?  What are you using?  Share your knowledge with the other readers and leave a comment.
