|Oracle Solaris Studio 12.2: Simple Performance Optimization Tool (SPOT) User's Guide|
SPOT uses several tools to collect data and generate its report.
The rpic tool collects performance counter information over the run of a program and produces a text summary of the stall time that each processor event contributed to the run time of the program. For example, it reports the number of seconds spent waiting for data located in memory.
The Binary Improvement Tool (BIT) instruments an application (provided it is compiled as described in Binaries Must Be Prepared Correctly) and generates information on the number of times each routine is called, the number of times each individual instruction is executed, and the instruction frequency for each assembly language instruction.
You can run each of these tools as a stand-alone tool. Only er_html and spot_diff produce HTML output when run them outside of SPOT.
