Conduct fast in-depth code analysis on 32-bit Intel x86 Windows applications with HiProf. Introduced by TracePoint, a spin-off of Digital Equipment Corp., HiProf uses a patented Binary Code Instrumentation technology to gather complete, precise data. It operates on binary code by inserting probes within the code to measure, analyze or modify the functionality of the program. No source code or OBJ files are needed. The program graphically displays the hierarchical relationship of parent functions, including data on a per-thread basis, and helps you spot performance bottlenecks.
You can select which executables and DLLs, in whole or in part, are to be analyzed.
