Lazy profiling (profiling disabled on startup)

This is useful if you want to profile certain areas of your code using bnoordhuis/node-profiler:

> nodeprofile yourapp.js --prof_lazy

"Dependencies"

  • python
  • SCONS (used to build the V8 debugger on first use)
  • That the locate command can find a copy of linux-tick-processor (or mac-tick-processor on OS X). This is bundled with node.js.

$ cd /usr/src/node
$ cd deps/v8
$ scons prof=on
$ export PATH="${PATH}:/usr/src/node/deps/v8"
