       llvm-prof - print execution profile of LLVM program


       llvm-prof [options] [bitcode file] [llvmprof.out]


       The llvm-prof tool reads in an llvmprof.out file (which can optionally
       use a specific file with the third program argument), a bitcode file
       for the program, and produces a human readable report, suitable for
       determining where the program hotspots are.

       This program is often used in conjunction with the utils/
       script.  This script automatically instruments a program, runs it with
       the JIT, then runs llvm-prof to format a report.  To get more
       information about utils/, execute it with the -help option.


       --annotated-llvm or -A
           In addition to the normal report printed, print out the code for
           the program, annotated with execution frequency information. This
           can be particularly useful when trying to visualize how frequently
           basic blocks are executed.  This is most useful with basic block
           profiling information or better.

           Using this option enables the --annotated-llvm option, but it
           prints the entire module, instead of just the most commonly
           executed functions.

           Record the amount of time needed for each pass and print it to
           standard error.


       llvm-prof returns 1 if it cannot load the bitcode file or the profile
       information. Otherwise, it exits with zero.


       llvm-prof is maintained by the LLVM Team (<>).
