nginx and google perftools

Hey folks,

I was reading the wiki how to configure perftools for nginx and I could get
it working thanks to google translate and the russian support :) So the
point is that google_perftools_profiles directive must be in the main
section and than it creates the files (per process) in the directory you
have specified.

My question would be:

what is next? The files are there but with 0 size:

-rw-rw-rw-   1 www    wheel     0B Dec  3 20:29 nginx.75619
-rw-rw-rw-   1 www    wheel     0B Dec  3 20:29 nginx.75618
-rw-rw-rw-   1 www    wheel     0B Dec  3 20:29 nginx.75617
-rw-rw-rw-   1 www    wheel     0B Dec  3 20:29 nginx.75616

How can I cat nginx to populate the files with data?

Do I miss something obvious?

Thank you in advance,

the sun shines for all
