On 2023-03-15, Grafana Labs acquired Pyroscope.
The teams and codebases of both Grafana Phlare and Pyroscope are merging into Grafana Pyroscope.
Grafana Pyroscope is a new project. It will take some time to merge codebases and get to the first release.
Feel free to use the information from the original Pyroscope project until that time.
What is Grafana Pyroscope?
Grafana Pyroscope is an open source continuous profiling platform. It will help you:
- Find performance issues and bottlenecks in your code
- Use high-cardinality tags/labels to analyze your application
- Resolve issues with high CPU utilization
- Track down memory leaks
- Understand the call tree of your application
- Auto-instrument your code to link profiling data to traces
🔥 Pyroscope Live Demo 🔥
- Minimal CPU overhead
- Efficient compression, low disk space requirements
- Can handle high-cardinality tags/labels
- Calculate the performance "diff" between various tags/labels and time periods
- Can store years of profiling data from multiple applications
- Advanced analysis UI
Add Pyroscope Server locally in 2 steps:
Pyroscope supports all major architectures and is very easy to install. For example, here is how you install on a mac:
# install pyroscope brew install pyroscope-io/brew/pyroscope # start pyroscope server: pyroscope server
Send data to server via Pyroscope agent (language specific)
For more documentation on how to add the Pyroscope agent to your code, see the agent documentation on our website or find language specific examples and documentation below:
Pyroscope also supports several third-party integrations notably:

Pyroscope is possible thanks to the excellent work of many people, including but not limited to:
- Brendan Gregg — inventor of Flame Graphs
- Julia Evans — creator of rbspy — sampling profiler for Ruby
- Vladimir Agafonkin — creator of flamebearer — fast flamegraph renderer
- Ben Frederickson — creator of py-spy — sampling profiler for Python
- Adam Saponara — creator of phpspy — sampling profiler for PHP
- Alexei Starovoitov, Brendan Gregg, and many others who made BPF based profiling in Linux kernel possible
- Jamie Wong — creator of speedscope — interactive flamegraph visualizer
