Profiling is the most popular approach to diagnosing performance problems of computer systems. Profiling records run-time system behavior by monitoring software and hardware events either exhaustively or--because of high costs and strong observer effect--periodically. Sampling rates thus determine visibility: the higher the sample rates, the finer-grain behavior observable, and thus the better profilers can help developers analyze and address performance problems.
Unfortunately, the sample...[Show more]
