Description Saggi Mizrahi 2014-10-22 09:02:12 UTC
Spec URL:
CPython standard distribution is coming with three profilers. cProfile, Profile
and hotshot. cProfile module is implemented as a C module based on lsprof,
Profile is in pure Python and the hotshot can be seen as a small subset of a
cProfile. The motivation to implement a new profiler is that all of these
profilers lacks the support of multi-threaded programs. If you want to profile
a multi-threaded application, you must give an entry point to these profilers
and then maybe merge the outputs. None of these profilers is designed to work
on long-running multi-threaded application. While implementing a game server,
it turns out that is is impossible to profile an application retrieve the
statistics then stop and then start later on on the fly(without affecting the
profiled application). With the experience of implementing a game server in
Python, we have identified most of the problems, tricky parts regarding
profiler usage and so, we have come up with simple but powerful requirements.

It has come to my attention that it's better to use the tip than the stable release so I modified the specfile.

Spec URL:

Comment 2 Piotr Popieluch 2014-10-25 14:33:47 UTC
Some comments:

- spec filename does not match package name, rename yappi.spec to python-yappi.spec
- Source0 url gives 404:
- No files markes as %doc. Add "%doc LICENSE" to %files section
- mock build fails missing BuildRequires. Add BuildRequires: python-setuptools

- %description is a bit long and is more a motivation than description.
- Could you add a python3 module?

Comment 4 Piotr Popieluch 2015-03-20 23:13:02 UTC
