ANN: Austin -- CPython frame stack sampler 0.7.0
I am delighted to announce the release 0.7.0 of Austin. If you haven't
heard of Austin before, it is a frame stack sampler for CPython. It can
be used to obtain statistical profiling data out of a running Python
application without a single line of instrumentation. This means that you
can start profiling a Python application straightaway, even while it's
running on a production environment, with minimal impact on performance.
The simplest way of using Austin is by piping its output to FlameGraph
for a quick and detailed representation of the collected samples. The
latest release introduces a memory profiling mode which allows you to
profile memory usage.
Austin is a pure C application that has no other dependencies other than
the C standard library. Its source code is hosted on GitHub at
The README contains installation and usage details, as well as some
examples of Austin in action. Details on how to contribute to Austin's
development can be found at the bottom of the page.
I hope that you can find Austin useful!
All the best,
