There is a profiling package, used with gprof, with data uploaded by TFTP. 
There's documentation in services/profile/gprof/current/doc. You will need 
to port to your platform.

A less useful alternative is kernel instrumentation.

A quick alternative is ctrl-c your app yourself a few times to see where 
it is ;-).
