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).
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.
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.

1. Doesn't work - https://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi? 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.
+1. voting for Valgrind integration

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
+1 for Valgrind integration!
+1 for valgrind integration
+1 as this would be useful for PHP development.
+1 this is still needed running on 8.1
