Dear Linux-Mips Mailing List Members,

     We have an application running under Linux on a Mips processor.
We are currently interested in doing some performance tuning and
bottleneck analysis on this application.  Searching the web turns
up alot of profiling tools of various kinds, but they are almost
universally oriented toward a PC / IA32 architecture.  The more useful
ones generally are tightly coupled to the PC hardware, and specifically
the timer chip.

     I wondered if any of you are aware of any porfiling tools which
can be used on a Linux/Mips OS/Platform, or perhaps someone has written
something for there own use that you'd be willing to share?

Some specific info about our environment:

   1. its a little endian processor using the MIPS IV architecture / IS

   2. the application is written in C, and compiled with the gcc 2.95.2
      C compiler

   3. the Linux kernel is 2.0,xx, mostly because we lack the resources
      to upgrade / port to 2.2 or 2.4.  Someday, hopefully (:

Any suggestions, help you can offer would be appreciated.  Thanks.


P.S.  Please respond to my personal email address, as I'm not subscribed
      to the mailing list.
