Extracting more detailed instruction frequency data from BIT
By Darryl Gove-Oracle on Mar 04, 2008
BIT has the ability to print out instruction frequency data, but there may be occasions where more detail is required. One way of getting more complete data is to ask bit to dump the disassembly for the entire application (using the option -a dis) and then write a script to parse the resulting output. The example script here extracts the integer/logical operations and reports them by type.
