Re: Path ping...
My motivation is to have basically similar statistic infrastructure for
all our basic datastructures (we do have same for pools, vectors, ggc
etc.). I think people use it from time to time and it is very useful
for memory tester, so the changes gets logged quite precisely. The new
testcase added to GCC triggers a lot of memory consumption in the
bitmaps, so the bitmap related problems popped up few times in recent
So, even though i've mentioned to honza that i'm not necessarily a fan
of the trip counting stuff, I feel it is only fair to say that i do
believe the rest of the statistics are very useful.
Usually, you have to figure out what it tells you by impliciation (oh,
every time i stop in GDB, i seem to be in bitmap_ior, maybe i'm using
bitmaps too much :P)
