Sampling Profiler for Python Build Status

This tool allows to gather statistical profile of CPU usage of mixed native-Python code. Currently supported platforms are Windows and Linux, x86_64 only.

Quick usage guide for Ubuntu 18.04.

Required for Linux:

  • python-dev package
  • setuptools python package
  • autoconf tool
  • libtool
  • make tool
  • unzip tool
  • g++ compiler
  • pkg-config tool
  • cmake tool

Required for Windows:

  • python installed
  • cmake
  • Visual Studio compilers, version depends on which Python version you want to target, see correct MSVC version

Before building do:

  • On Linux:
    • git submodule update --init --recursive
    • cd 3rd_party && ./prereq-build.sh && cd ..
  • On Windows:
    • Update third-party intel-xed, mbuild, protobuf, protobuf-c and safestringlib submodules (3rd_party folder):
      • git submodule update --init -- .\3rd_party\intel-xed
      • git submodule update --init -- .\3rd_party\mbuild
      • git submodule update --init -- .\3rd_party\protobuf
      • git submodule update --init -- .\3rd_party\protobuf-c
      • git submodule update --init -- .\3rd_party\safestringlib
    • Apply protobuf-c-vs2008-support.patch (step is required for Python 2 target only):
      • cd 3rd_party\protobuf-c && git apply ..\protobuf-c-vs2008-support.patch && cd ..\..
    • If you have installed VS2017 or VS2019, apply next command (optional step) in the same command line prompt window in which next command will be applied (please note, that path to the vcvars64.bat file may vary by version of VS installed):
      • CALL "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvars64.bat" -vcvars_ver=14.0
    • For Python 2.x run:
    • cd 3rd_party && prereq-build-py2.cmd && cd ..
    • For Python 3.5 or 3.6 run:
    • cd 3rd_party && prereq-build-py3.cmd && cd ..
    • For other versions of 3.x (untested) try fixing the file up specifying correct MSVC version

For building do:

  • mkdir pyext/build
  • cd pyext/build
  • On Windows:
    • For Python 2.x:
      • cmake -G "Visual Studio 9 2008 Win64" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release .. -DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=path\to\python.exe
    • For Python 3.5 or 3.6:
      • cmake -G "Visual Studio 14 2015 Win64" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release .. -DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=path\to\python.exe
    • Open generated "pysamprof.sln" with VS2008 (if Python 2) or VS2015 (if Python 3), choose "Release" "x64" as solution configuration
    • Build solution
    • Copy Release\pysamprof.pyd and trace_writer\Release\pysamprof-server.exe to desired location
  • On Linux:
    • cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release .. -DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=path/to/python
    • make
    • Copy pysamprof.so and trace_writer/pysamprof-server to desired location
  • NOTE: specifying -DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=path/to/python will force which Python version to compile against; if omitted it will select highest available Python on your system.

To use:

  • Add path to location which has pysamprof and pysamprof-server inside to PYTHONPATH
  • Do import pysamprof then pysamprof.start(target_path), see pyext/test.py as a quick reference
