Sure. You need first to start the profiler with:

opcontrol --start

then run your application, for example:

python2.5 /tmp/clipb2.py

after this you should instruct oprofile to stop collecting samples:

opcontrol --stop

now, you need to tell oprofile that you want a report on the binary
you have run (i.e. your interpreter):

opreport -l /usr/local/bin/python2.5  # put there your actual path

That's all.

Remember to reset all the samples in oprofile each time you want to
start a new run (otherwise the samples will accumulate from run to

opcontrol --reset
