Profiling using Qt Creator on macOS?



  • Hi,

    I am using Qt Creator 4.11.0 on macOS 10.15.2, and I was wondering what is the best way to profile my application?

    I have seen some information, but this is targeted at Linux (not to mention that Valgrind cannot be brew installed on macOS versions newer than High Sierra).

    So, what are my options, if any?

    Cheers, Alan.



  • So, any way to profile a Qt application on macOS? I really wish there was a "native" way of doing this in Qt Creator...

    Hi,

    As for your question, if memory serves well, you should take a look at the Instruments application which comes with Xcode.

    Yes, I know. It's just that, being based in New Zealand, if I post/email something at the end of my day then I normally get a reply at the beginning of the following day (since most people are based either in Europe or in the US), but... I do take your point.

    Thanks, I am going to look into it.
