Profiler Zoo

Abstract: Most of the tools that we use to develop software are based on a fixed and static representation of source code. Code execution profiling is a weak point of most programming languages and environment, including Smalltalk. In this presentation, we will review state-of-the-Art profilers, which output sexy graphical representation of code execution, test coverage, memory profiling and execution differentiation. These profilers have been successfully used in various project.
