Profiling tool required


Can anybody recommend a good profiling tool for measuring multithreaded programs runtime. The profiling is needed for optimization purposes so it need to report how many times a particular function was called and its average runtime. It also needs to support C++ with template functions and classes.

Appreciate your help...

Try gprof and valgrind (which is not a profiler, but has interesting profiling options). I haven't tried them with a multithreaded program, but they should work.
