v8-profiler provides node bindings for the v8 profiler and integration with node-inspector

Installation

npm install another-v8-profiler

We now include node v0.10 binaries for a number of platforms. During the install, node-gyp will attempt to build the module for your platform. If it fails (see builderror.log), the module will still be installed, but will attempt to load up an appropriate pre-built binary for your platform if there is one available.

Usage

var profiler = require('another-v8-profiler');

Examples

var profiler = require('another-v8-profiler');
var heapProfiler = profiler.heapProfiler;
var snapshot = heapProfiler.takeSnapshot([name])    // takes a heap snapshot
snapshot.save(filename);                            // save the snapshot to file
snapshot.delete();                                  // delete the snapshot (releases memory)
var profiler = require('another-v8-profiler');
var cpuProfiler = profiler.cpuProfiler;
cpuProfiler.startProfiling([name])                  // begin cpu profiling
var cpuProfile = profiler.stopProfiling([name])     // finish cpu profiling

node-inspector

Cpu profiles can be viewed and heap snapshots may be taken and viewed from the profiles panel.
