I need a tool to profile a Linux application, but I can't seem to find any that have little overhead. (By overhead, I mean require a large download or disk space once installed.)
I looked at
valgrind but it seems to require the debug version of libc6 - not a small download.
All I need the tool to do is track the amount of time it takes the application to execute. (Including only the time the application is executing instructions, not task switching, etc.)
