Sysprof is a sampling CPU profiler that uses a ptrace in Linux kernel to
profile the entire system, not just a single application. Sysprof handles
shared libraries and applications do not need to be recompiled. In fact they
don't even have to be restarted.
It has the following features:
- profiles all running processes, not just a single application
- has a simple graphical interface
- shows the time spent in each branch of the call tree
- profiles can be loaded and saved
