Description : perf - Performance analysis tools for Linux
Performance counters for Linux are are a new kernel-based subsystem
that provide a framework for all things performance analysis. It
covers hardware level (CPU/PMU, Performance Monitoring Unit) features
and software features (software counters, tracepoints) as well.
The source code for this is already shipped in the linux-2.6 source package, since this
tool is part of the Linux kernel.
However the tool is not built as a Debian package, therefore I filed this RFP.
