Example text

In some operating systems, a misbehaving process can stomp all over other applications, or even break the operating system itself, before the system is able to terminate the process. As a result, poorly written programs can cause the entire computer to freeze or crash. Not so on Unix; because a process cannot modify other processes, including the kernel, there is virtually no risk of a bad process bringing down the entire operating system. Although the kernel is responsible for accessing hardware, much of the knowledge of specific hardware details is delegated to device drivers.

This creates the illusion that all the applications on your system were designed to work together — even though your applications may have been designed by different people, all with different interests. Once you learn how to use one application, you have a pretty good idea of how to use all applications. Apple provides a document, called the Apple Human Interface Guidelines, that spells out how Mac OS X applications should look and behave. Applications written against one of Mac OS X’s application frameworks start with a bit of an advantage: all the user interface elements provided by these frameworks meet the specifications in the Apple Human Interface Guidelines.

Shark differs from Sampler in that it samples your entire system, not just a single application. Shark takes your call stack data one step further by showing your frame’s assembly code, and even the source code, if available. So when Shark indicates you’re spending a suspicious amount of time in a particular function, you can actually view the source code for that function right there. And if that isn’t enough, Shark even suggests specific ways in which you can improve your function’s performance.
