Rakudo Perl 6 performance analysis tooling

Name

Timo Paulssen

Amount Requested:

7,500 USD

Synopsis

Rakudo on MoarVM already comes with two kinds of profilers and multiple kinds of internal logs. There's also a way to get coverage analysis from any given program or set of programs.

The focus on internals that these tools have in common can make it quite daunting for someone not involved in core development to use these tools and to make sense of the data gathered.

I will create a new GUI (browser-based) for the instrumented profiler (which takes timings of functions and counts allocations) and the heap snapshot profiler (which records what objects are alive and how they are interconnected) and make invoking the profiling modes simpler.

In the last two months Chad has been working mostly on the Test2 code than in the documentation itself. This way he can document the final version of the API and do not need to, later, rewrite the docs. This work included the new event system. Chad released the stable version of Test2 two days ago, and therefore he is now resuming his work on the documentation.

I didn't do much TPF work last month; I was mainly instead doing work
funded by Booking.com.

What time I did spend was mainly fixing a few 'blead breaks perl' tickets.
