flamegraph 0.1.0

A simple cargo subcommand for generating flamegraphs, using inferno under the hood
flamegraph-0.1.0 is not a library.

cargo-flamegraph

Usage:

# defaults to profiling cargo run, which will
# also profile the cargo compilation process
# unless you've previously issued `cargo build`
cargo flamegraph

# if you'd like to profile your release build:
cargo flamegraph --release

# if you'd like to profile a specific binary:
cargo flamegraph --bin=stress2

# if you'd like to profile an arbitrary executable:
cargo flamegraph --exec="sleep 10"

A simple cargo plugin that generates a flamegraph for a workload.

Currently only linux is supported via perf, but this is going to change as inferno gains support for others.

To enable perf without running as root, you may lower the perf_event_paranoid value in proc to an appropriate level for your environment. The most permissive value is -1 but may not be acceptable for your security needs etc...

echo -1 | sudo tee /proc/sys/kernel/perf_event_paranoid
