If you want to know how much CPU, memory, or other resources your application has used, you can pre-load a library and define a
.fini method that prints out the results. You can also take advantage of the
getusage call, which provides some information about CPU time and processes. But more information is available. Darryl provides examples of how to use these two components plus others that fill in the details.

Profiling is critical to improving application performance. Without profiling, it is very easy to guess where the application is spending cycles, and then expend effort optimizing code that has little effect on overall performance. Oracle Solaris Studio 12.4 provides an overview screen designed to focus you on the metrics with the most promise. Darryl Gove walks you through the overview screen and explains what it indicates about your application.

About the Photograph
I took the picture of the 01 Ducati 748S this summer, in Colorado. It currently has about 1300 miles on the odometer.
