The cs.utah.edu link that Buggy provided below looks like a good source of information on gprof. I'm not very experienced in gprof (as of now, at least) so I'm sorry I can't be more specific but it looks like you can skip a lot of the info on the link if you just want a basic profile.

Also, if you just type 'gprof' in the terminal, it should be automatically found (it's a command line app). If you need more help, please just post and I'll see what I can do.

It seems to be installed, but I can´t find the file in the path the terminal told me, and if I find it, I need to know how to use it.

If you have the Xcode development tools installed (and maybe even if you don't), gprof should already be on your computer. Open a terminal and type 'which gprof'. If this spits something back at you like "/usr/bin/gprof", then you have gprof installed; if the command produces no output then you don't have it installed.

Where can I download that gprof tool? I had a look into Google and found a lot of documentation but no download link for it.

If you can run the profiling tool grpof, so we can see where in warzone this is occurring.

It is the same if I am not the host. The CPU usage, however, falls down to a low level if we wait for a long time for other players.

Yes, that´s what I meant! Excuse by bad English, but I am not sure what the meaning of "If so, can you profile it with gprof ?" :-/

Do you mean when your hosting a game, and waiting for other players to join, the CPU usage goes to 100%?

If so, can you profile it with gprof ?

The Mac version causes 100 % CPU usage while waiting for other players in the waiting-room, making the notebooks fan run at topspeed and topnoise. The CPU usage drops to a much lower level during gameplay. In comparison: The Win version causes very low CPU usage in the waiting room!
