NAME

       hatari_profile - Post-processor for Hatari profiler data

SYNOPSIS

       hatari_profile.py [options] <datafiles>

DESCRIPTION

       A Python script to post-process data produced by Hatari profiler "save" commands, both for
       CPU and DSP:
            profile save <filename>
            dspprofile save <filename>

       It can provide function level (CPU and  DSP)  processor  usage  information  for  anything
       Hatari  profiler records: instruction counts, processor cycles and depending on processor,
       also instruction cache misses or cycle differences.

       This information can be provided as ASCII list of heaviest functions,  as  callgraphs  (if
       profile  data  includes  caller  information),  or as callgrind format export which can be
       viewed in (Linux) Kcachegrind GUI.

OPTIONS

       Invoking hatari_profile without arguments lists all of its options.

USAGE EXAMPLES

       Regardless of whether profile data contains some symbol  information,  you  should  always
       give  script  all relevant debug symbols, otherwise costs might not get correctly assigned
       to symbols preceding those costs.

       This post-processes profile data for EmuTOS (ROM), with symbol file having  fixed/absolute
       addresses  (-a),  shows  statistics  (-s)  and  top  lists (-t), but limits list output to
       anything taking over 2% (-l 2) and includes "propagated" subroutine call costs (-p):

       This creates GraphViz callgraph files (-g) and Kcachegrind callgrind data file  (-k)  from
       Bad  Mood  (Doom  BSP  viewer) profile.  Symbols for the program are TEXT section relative
       (-r), calls to some interrupt routines in the program are  ignored  as  they  aren't  real
       calls,  callgraph nodes using over 2% are highlighted, and there are some options to limit
       and simplify the graph:
       -------------------------------------------------------------
       $ hatari_profile.py -r bmsym.sym \
