Follow the steps below to get profiling information for your application:

  • Download the full Xcode distribution (iprofiler is not included with the Xcode command line tools distribution).
  • Compile MOOSE and your application in oprof mode.
  • Run your application through the profiler:
iprofiler -timeprofiler -T 10m ./mooseapp-oprof -i input.i
  • This will create a directory mooseapp-oprof.dtps which you can open using
open mooseapp-oprof.dtps

The Instruments application will open in a new window.
