How long does it take to write a Signpost to the unified log? Measuring this is essential if you’re going to use them to measure performance.
Makes it easy to write, harvest and analyse Signposts in the log to measure performance. Important fix for Apple Silicon too.
One solution to running 32-bit apps in Catalina is a VM. Here I assess the performance of Parallels Desktop 15. Is it up to the job?
You can use Signposts readily from scripting languages, shell scripts, even within 3rd party apps, with the aid of these tools.
This page is for your support questions and comments on my free utilities Consolation, RouteMap, Whither, Woodpile, MakeLogarchive, […]
Both are now notarized for added security, there is a small bug fixed in Consolation, and updated documentation.
Natural language parsing, privacy exploring, update investigating, xattr-tweaking, iCloud poking, log browsing: they’re all here for Mojave.
At last: RouteMap performs some analysis on your Signposts, and with the other tools can be used to estimate latency, and look at macOS system performance too.
Picking the right time system for the purpose is critical when you want to analyse very short periods. Sometimes it takes time to discover how to juggle with time.
Blowhole 7 now writes proper Signposts in Mojave, as well as Pseudo-Signposts in Sierra and High Sierra.
