It's not so very important now, but it is still interesting.

By the way, if you're not used to oprofile: the docs make it look
heinously difficult to use, but it's really very easy!  The only hard
part is reading the docs...

I do
  sudo sh -c 'opcontrol --reset ; opcontrol --start'; ./a.out trash flibber poo; sudo sh -c 'opcontrol --stop'

to measure a job, then

  sudo opreport -l

to get the report.  It's really that easy.

The trouble with very short runtimes like this one is that you might
not have enough samples.

Yeah.  Oprofile might still be interesting.

Andrew.
