Hey all,

I have the pleasure to finally announce the availability of hotspot v1.1.0. Hotspot is a GUI for Linux perf. Right now, it's a drop-in replacement for (parts of) perf report. It aims to be easier to use, but comes with powerful features to analyze the profiler data. This release adds

  • event time line with advanced filtering capabilities
  • record page to run perf on newly launched applications or to attach to running processes
  • AppImage for easier consumption, esp. on older distros

The full release announcement contains pretty screenshots:

Thanks, hope you like it. If so, please consider contributing:

Bug Reports:

NOTE: The GitHub-provided source tarballs do not contain the required perfparser submodule. Either download that separately, or directly use one of the hotspot-v1.1.0.{tar.gz,zip} source packages, which should be self-contained.
