Could anyone recommend a (free) load analysis program for unix/sun please? I am trying to optimize my code and would like to look at the system load as I run my application and perform various operations. I downloaded one a couple of years ago but cannot find it now.
You mean something like this? http://conky.sourceforge.net/
But unless you use a real profiler like gprof you're not going to notice any difference. I suggest gprof. You probably already have it -- it comes with GCC. http://www.cs.utah.edu/dept/old/texi...gprof_toc.html
Thanks SO much for your prompt response!! Yes, gprof is what I was looking for. Used it two years ago but couldn't even remember its name.
