The PipeWire profiler

SYNOPSIS

pw-profiler [options]

DESCRIPTION

Start profiling a PipeWire instance.

If the server has the profiler module loaded, this program will connect to it and log the profiler data. Profiler data contains times and durations when processing nodes and devices started and completed.

When this program is stopped, a set of gnuplot files and a script to generate SVG files from the .plot files is generated, along with a .html file to visualize the profiling results in a browser.

This function uses the same data used by pw-top.

OPTIONS

-r | --remote=NAME
The name the remote instance to monitor. If left unspecified, a connection is made to the default PipeWire instance.
-h | --help
Show help.
--version
Show version information.
-o | --output=FILE
Profiler output name (default "profiler.log").
