      Description

      Qt Creator's manual page about profiling mentions callgrind for analyzing / profiling an application. Callgrind is not available on Windows.

      At Profiling and Memory Checking Tools we have multiple suggestions on how to deal with the matter on Windows.

      The most promising is Very Sleepy which could handle both MSVC and MinGW.

      It supports any native Windows app, if it has standard PDB or DWARF debugging information. No recompilation is necessary – it can just attach to any app as it's running.

      Both 32-bit x86 and 64-bit x64 systems are fully supported, and Very Sleepy will work with both Visual Studio or gcc/mingw compilers.

      Profiling results are displayed in full call-graph format, and can additionally be saved and exported to CSV format.
