Description

We are missing documentation on how to use profiling tools with Blender:
https://wiki.blender.org/wiki/Tools

Ideally for each platform we would document one recommended, user-friendly profiler and exact steps to use it.

For Mac.

Is OpenGL profiler relevant ?https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/documentation/GraphicsImaging/Conceptual/OpenGLProfilerUserGuide/Introduction/Introduction.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40006475

Also, instruments.app seems to be a fine choice for Mac since it comes with the compulsory Xcode

I'm not sure OpenGL Profiler is still available with Xcode. But Instruments is indeed the profiling tool to recommend on macOS.
