Google performance tools

Earlier today I came across the Google performance tools, which include an alternative memory allocator which is supposed to be fast (still testing it).

There also a heap leak checker, a heap profiler and a CPU profiler.

At first glance it does not look like the CPU profiler offers much more than gprof except for a graphical output (I prefer text, old school I know,) and the heap leak checker looks similar to Valgrind.

But I will keep playing with these tools, it is nice to see that Google put these tools out into the public domain, and having a range of tools to choose from can only be a good thing.
