ghc-prof-flamegraph: Generates flamegraphs from GHC .prof files.

[ mit, program, testing ] [ Propose Tags ]

This is a small tool to convert GHC time profiling reports into a format understandable by the FlameGraph ( tool.

To use, first convert a .prof file into the flame graph format using ghc-prof-flamegraph:

$ cat ~/src/packdeps/ | ghc-prof-flamegraph >

Then you can use the file to produce an svg image, using the script:

$ cat | ~/src/FlameGraph/ >

You can also generate a flamegraph using the allocation measurements, using the --alloc flag, number of entries using --entries flag, number of bytes allocated using --bytes. In order to use --bytes or --ticks flag one have to run program with +RTS -P -RTS in order to get those measurements.
