Is there an application that will do what Threadscope or the parallel tools of Visual Studio does for multithreaded program analysis in Linux?

For those people who know neither Threadscope nor Visual Studio but know about Linux debugging tools, what features are you after? – Gilles Apr 21 '12 at 22:39
@Gilles: Thanks. I'm after, for example, how much work each thread has done, how much waiting time per thread, etc. As much info about how a multithreaded program has run as possible. – Dervin Thunk Apr 21 '12 at 22:42

There are many tools. Intel VTune Amplifier (formerly VTune Performance Analyzer), Oracle Solaris Studio for RedHat Linux includes visual Thread Analyzer. And a number of tools were mentioned in this Stackoverflow thread or this thread.

Many of the available profiling tools can be accessed via Eclipse Linux Tools project.
