Better late than never?  If  you have not found out by now, it means do 
not compile in performance monitoring tools.  When it is on you will 
have extra code.  When the program is run you can run a kind of 
benchmark with it to analyze when what is going on and how long parts of 
the code take to run.  It is a big help if you want to maximize a 
programs speed, but is a waste of space for regular users.
