Valgrind with dynamically linked GCC plugin
Wed Jun 3 07:18:00 GMT 2015
I've been using the profiling tool valgrind for a while now. It
requires an executable to run, i.e.
$ valgrind ./a.out
I want to use it on a dynamically linked GCC plugin, and list the time
taken and the number of calls by each function used in the plugin. I
am running the GCC plugin as follows:
$ gcc -fplugin=./plugin.so myfile.c
When I run the following command, valgrind reports the memory leaks
for only gcc and not for plugin.so. I need a way to run valgrind
exclusively on my plugin, which is a .so file.
$ valgrind gcc -fplugin=./plugin.so myfile.c
$ gcc -fplugin=./plugin.so myfile.c -wrapper valgrind
Is it even possible to do that? I've searched up on this a lot but
haven't found any concrete answer on it.
