Profiling Evince

First you'll need to get the source code. Once you have a working copy you need to enable profiling using the following configure option.

./configure --enable-debug

PROFILING

At execution time, you must enable the profiling service. To enable the profiling service, set the environment variable for the section you want to profile or set EV_PROFILE to enable the profiling service for all sections.

The following sections are available:

EV_PROFILE_JOBS

Example:

EV_PROFILE_JOBS=1 evince document.pdf

output:
