Description rmartins 2009-04-08 23:37:47 UTC

Will profiling be available for Linux in 6.7?
Would it be possible to add support for Valgrind's tools: memcheck, cachegrind, callgrind, hellgrind & massif (for Linux).

Comment 1 Alexey Vladykin 2009-04-10 09:24:15 UTC
Profiling for Linux is implemented using SunStudio tool called 'collect'. SunStudio has to be installed for this to
work; but maybe we'll make 'collect' available as NB plugin. Without 'collect' only basic profiling information will be
provided: CPU, memory and thread usage indicators.
There are no plans to support Valgrind yet.
Comment 2 rmartins 2009-04-14 11:45:56 UTC
Hi Alexey,
having the 'collect' as a plugin for the "immediate" future seems a good thing.

I found that eclipse has a project named "Linux Tools Project" that focus on 'integrating popular native development
tools' such as GNU Autotools, Valgrind, OProfile, RPM, Systemtap, etc. 

I would really like to see the same happening to CND. My list would be (by order of preference):
Valgrind (full set), cmake, GNU Autotools, SystemTap, RPM, debian packages (.debs).

My question is, should every item on the list be a separate issue, or should we widen this issue?

NetBeans 6.5 has RPM and Deb support.

> Profiling for Linux is implemented using SunStudio tool

1. Doesn't work - id=197359
2. If I use NetBeans - what for to me still 700Mb Solaris Studio.
3. If to install Solaris Studio - what for to me also NetBeans.
4. The full functionality in Solaris Studio can be received only using and its compilers. How to collect QtApplication if Qt libraries gathered with the help gcc.

Valgrind, gprof, gcov - Eclipse, CodeBlocks
Valgrind - Kdevelop, QtCreator

Valgrind 3.7 has a gdbserver implementation built-in (with the --vgdb option); NetBeans should be able to integrate with valgrind and retain full debugging capability.
Comment 6 zachsaw 2012-07-24 04:03:03 UTC
+1. voting for Valgrind integration

+1 :)

Good morning, was wondering what the immediate hurdles are for not supporting a Valgrind plugin, is it size of the project? In any case, it would be a great addition. Cheers! +1
Comment 11 carlos_alberto_bulant 2015-06-07 13:01:44 UTC
+1 for Valgrind integration!
Comment 12 necktwi 2016-01-05 06:08:45 UTC
+1 for valgrind integration
Comment 13 say_ten 2016-06-14 09:51:13 UTC
+1 as this would be useful for PHP development.
Comment 14 otuk 2017-01-24 00:52:44 UTC
+1  this is still needed running on 8.1
