[Article Proposal] Performance Profiling in Fedora

Article Summary:

Learn how to use the profiling tools for GNOME to discover performance issues and fix them.

Article Description:

The GNOME community has wanted frame-pointers for a decade on x86_64 so that we could improve system-wide performance. With Fedora 39 not only do we have frame-pointers but also a new version of the Sysprof profiler which can take advantage of them.

Learn how profilers work and why frame-pointers are currently necessary to have a good experience with system-wide profiling.

Fedora helping to lead this change has already impacted other distributions to follow suit.

Note to Editors:

I have this article mostly finished at this point. So turn around can be fairly quick.

I give this article a +1. When another editor weighs in with +1 we’ll open a tracking ticket in Pagure and let you know.

Thank you.
