I've spent a little time messing with Shark, using a modified version
of the code
Hamilton posted in October. I've attached my version of his file, in
useful to anybody; it just makes a couple trivial changes to output all
symbols in a specified package, instead of only one symbol at a time.
I am seeing weird behavior when I try to actually use this code.
Shark fails to
identify most of the symbols; well, that's not necessarily a bug. But
it claims that
most of the time is spent in functions which I know weren't being
they are in a totally different program module. It also claims that
I know did run for at least several seconds weren't called at all. In
somehow the symbol addresses Shark gets are wrong. How can that be? I
thought the call to (ccl::purify) moved function definitions into a
where they wouldn't be moved again... Are functions being aggressively
In an old post, Gary, you mentioned that there was a way to get
cough up what function a given address is in. That might be a bit
diagnosing this problem. How does that work?
For now, I'm just going to do my profiling the old-fashioned way,
around each of the functions I suspect of being problematic. So I
need to solve these Shark issues for myself, right now, but it would be
have a general framework for others to use.
