Garbled time when examining Apache::DProf tmon.out

Booger has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear Monks:

I'm attempting to find bottlenecks in a mod_perl 1.29 enabled application by using Apache::DProf.

I place the line PerlModule Apache::DProf in my Apache server configuration; start the http daemon in single process mode, make a request and then stop the web server.

I then run dprofpp against the tmon.out generated by Apache::DProf but end up receiving the following message:

Exporter::Heavy::heavy_export Garbled profile, unexpected exit time stamp at /usr/local/bin/dprofpp +line 666, <fh> line 1319.

Any suggestions as to why I am getting this message would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

    Try adding -F to your dprofpp command line.

    From the output of perldoc -F dprofpp.bat

    -F Force the generation of fake exit timestamps if dprofpp repor +ts that the profile is garbled. This is only useful if dprofpp determines that the profile is garbled due to missing exit timestamps. You're on your own if you do this. Consult the BU +GS section. [...] BUGS Applications which call _exit() or exec() from within a subroutine + will leave an incomplete profile. See the -F option.

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco. -- Rule 1 has a caveat! -- Who broke the cabal?

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
