nose-cprof 0.1.4

A python nose plugin to profile using cProfile rather than the default Hotshot profiler.

A plugin to use cProfile to profile nosetests, rather than the built-in Hotshot profiler.

Profiling tests can help track down sources of performance issues in code, especially if a synthetic test can be created to focus on the area of concern.

The output generated by this plugin can easily be browsed using pstats_viewer, or any other pstats-compatible viewer.

Getting started


This is a plugin for nose, so it’s useless without that installed.


pip install nose-cprof


This plugin adds some new options to nosetests:

--with-cprofile       Enable plugin cProfiler:  Use this plugin to run tests
                      using the cProfile profiler.  [NOSE_WITH_CPROFILE]
                      Output file name; default "stats.dat"
                      Erase previously-collected profiling statistics before
