This is a library for time profiling sequential or Async code.

Wrap interesting places in your code with calls to profile:

open! Nested_profile;;

profile "do_thing" (fun () ->
  profile "foo" foo;
  profile "bar" bar;

Then each top-level call to profile will output a hierarchical display of all profile calls beneath it:

      1.284s -- do_thing
        209.266ms -- foo
        1.074s -- bar
module Sync_or_async : sig ... end

A Sync_or_async.t specifies whether the computation being profiled is synchronous or asynchronous.

val profile : ?hide_if_less_than:Core.Time_ns.Span.t -> 'a Sync_or_async.t -> Core.Sexp.t Core.Lazy.t -> (unit -> 'a) -> 'a

profile sync_or_async message f measures the time taken to run f, and outputs the result. Nested calls to profile are displayed as a tree. Use Async to profile Async code. It is safe to nest calls to profile inside calls to profile Async. profile Async does have some restrictions in order to get valid results:

  • a nested call to profile Async must exit before its parent does
  • there cannot be multiple sibling calls to profile Async running concurrently
val am_forcing_message : unit -> bool

am_forcing_message () returns true when profiling is calling force on a message supplied to profile. This is useful if you want to have a sexp_of_t function behave differently when producing messages.

val approximate_line_length_limit : int Core.ref
val should_profile : bool Core.ref
val hide_if_less_than : Core.Time_ns.Span.t Core.ref
val hide_top_level_if_less_than : Core.Time_ns.Span.t Core.ref
val never_show_rendering_took : bool Core.ref
val sexp_of_time_ns : (Core.Time_ns.t -> Core.Sexp.t) Core.ref
val tag_frames_with : (unit -> Core.Sexp.t option) option Core.ref
val output_profile : (string -> unit) Core.ref

profile calls output_profile to display the profile to the user. It is print_string by default.

module Start_location : sig ... end
val start_location : Start_location.t Core.ref

start_location specifies where in a profile the start time is rendered.

val backtrace : unit -> Core.Sexp.t list option

Return the current stack of profile messages, sorted inner profile frames first. Returns None if should_profile is false.

val disown : (unit -> 'a) -> 'a

disown f runs f as though it were at top level, rather than whatever the current context is. In other words, it causes the parent (current) context to disown children created by f. This is useful for background jobs that might outlive their parents, since Nested_profile requires that parents wait for their children.
