Look for a good, inexpensive profiler

I'm looking for a profiler - something like Quantify or Purify, but much less expensive.

Any recommendations?

Gprof is the first thing I think of. It comes with all(?) distributions.

I'm with Mara - gprof is very good, and it's free. In fact, it's good enough that most HPUX boxes I work on have gprof as well as the tools that come with HPUX.

Thanks guys. I wasn't aware that gprof is already on my machines... or that it existed at all.
