Cachegrind your Web apps
Nov 11, 2008 @ 11:19:37

Douglas Clifton has a quick new post to his blog looking at an invaluable tool in application development (and not just in PHP) - cachegrind output.

Valgrind is a entire suite of open-source tools, including basic debugging, profiling, and more advanced techniques such as threading, memory management, and leak detection. For the purposes of this article, I will focus on Cachegrind, and in particular within the domain of Web applications. Although there are a number of developers contributing to Valgrind, Julian Seward is the original designer and author.

He talks about the cachegrind software and the PHP-based profiler that can create these files - XDebug. He also includes a list of a few of the cachegrind viewers including KCachegrind and Webgrind.
