Profilerpedia: Software Profiling Tool Catalog

Profilerpedia is a catalog of Profilers, Profiler Data Formats they output, the UIs that can analyse/visualise those data formats, and data format converters.

See the announcement blog post.

This is an attempt to map the software profiling ecosystem. A literature review / survey of profilers, their data formats, UIs, and converters.

I started this database for myself when trying to find good visualisation tools for complex Android performance problems, and published it publicly figuring it might be useful to other performance engineers.

Please file an issue or leave comments on the source spreadsheet where I’ve missed anything and I will update this.
