Cachegrind and Massif, and tons of other stuff.
Tom Hughes did a vast number of bug fixes, helped out with support for
more recent Linux/glibc versions, set up the present build system, and has

Jeremy Fitzhardinge wrote Helgrind (in the 2.X line) and totally
overhauled low-level syscall/signal and address space layout stuff,
among many other things.
Josef Weidendorfer wrote and maintains Callgrind and the associated
KCachegrind GUI.

interception machinery, support for client allocation pools, and minor
other tweakage.

system during 2011.
Philippe Waroquiers wrote and maintains the embedded GDB server. He
