dcpi2ps(1)

NAME

dcpi2ps - DCPI graph formatter

SYNOPSIS

dcpi2ps [-o <filename>] [-s <scale>] [<graph-file>]

DESCRIPTION

Dcpi2ps takes a DCPI graph file and turns it into PostScript. In the PostScript output, "larger" basic blocks are generally "more important." Specifically, for each basic block, the font size indicates the block's execution count, the physical space occupied by the block on paper indicates the amount of time spent in that block, and the number of lines indicates the average number of cycles required to execute it.

FLAGS

-o <filename>
Send output to <filename>, default to stdout.
-s <scale>
Set scale factor to <scale> (a floating point number).
<graph-file>
The DCPI graph file, default from stdin.

TYPICAL USAGE

Typically, dcpicalc(1), dcpisource(1), and dcpi2ps are used together as follows:

dcpicalc -db db idle_thread /vmunix | \
dcpisource -f /src/kernel/kern/sched_prim.c | \
dcpi2ps -o idle_thread.ps
