Summary0000613: Allow starting/stoping/restarting the profiling

It would be a good thing to allow the profiler to be controlled from the userland.
This could especially be handy when you have to profile daemons, because if you call pcntl_fork then the file descriptors would be cloned.
This would cause that both instance would be outputting the profiling information to the same file, and which is far more worse: the file handler would be closed when the parent or any child exits.

TagsNo tags attached.

This would be good to have, but with the current architecture it's really difficult to do. So I am not targeting this for a specific version.

Starting and stopping like the function trace feature would be great. But would it be possible to fix it like 0000938 did for debugging forked processes, basically starting a new profile instance when the PID changes? Unfortunately none of the trigger mechanisms provided by xdebug.profiler_enable_trigger work with forked processes since the standard PHP request processing is not occurring.

Is this issue still relevant to you?

Yes. I am still working with daemon PHP processes that do the 99% of the actual work and profiling is desirable. Last I tried this, I couldn't profile the daemon process either because the profiler closes as soon as the first child exits. I also think it would help when working with Swoole coroutines that handle separate requests.
