Super Lightweight
C++ Profiler
for Games.

Free for commercial use. Yes, absolutely free.

Unique mixture of core features

Instrumentation

Collect detailed timing for each function marked in your code. Extremely useful for primary investigation and keeping track of performance over time.

Sampling

Collect statistical data about the work that is performed by any specified scope of your application during a profiling run.

Hooking

Hook any function from sampling run to collect precise timing in every frame. Indispensable tool for fast checking assumptions, spike investigation and keeping eye on system functions.

Huge power inside

Easy Integration

One line in your code is more than enough to start.

Save/Load

Of course you can store all your profiling data. It's very joyful to compare timings 'before' and 'after' optimization.

Profiling Over The Network

Someone from your team is in trouble? Connect to his game via network. You do not need to take a walk any more.

Lightweight Overhead

Even a couple thousand counters will have virtually zero impact on your performance. You can even leave them in your Release build to be always ready.

Fast Iterations

Allows you to check your assumptions extremely fast. Usually you won't need to build or restart your application to get everything you need.

Source Code Included

Hell yeah! That's all you need!

Context Switches

With the help of Event Tracing for Windows API Brofiler captures system events. You can easily get crucial information about context switches.

Timeline control shows you precise information about your threads and can help to profile and fix synchronization bottlenecks.

Bunch of system functions (Sleep, WaitForSingleObject) are hooked and automatically will get to the scope.

Responsive GUI

GUI is the most important part of any profiler.

We've focused on providing extensive tool set alongside with blazing performance on big data sets.

Full power of C# and WPF helped to create a lot of iterations and find the most representative way to visualize profiling data.

Proven in Real Conditions

Started as a small tool, Brofiler has grown up to an everyday instrument, that helps not only to find and fix hotspots, but also to hold control over performance after any time-critical modification.

Here is a list of use cases in Skyforge:

  • Integrated into automated testing system
  • QA department loves this tool and provides primary analysis
  • Tons of milliseconds were saved during the project
