para from link,
However, some operating systems, most notably Linux 2.0 (and earlier),
do not provide a
profil() system call. On such a system,
arrangements are made for the kernel to periodically deliver
a signal to the process (typically via
which then performs the same operation of examining the
program counter and incrementing a slot in the memory array.
Since this method requires a signal to be delivered to
user space every time a sample is taken, it uses considerably
more overhead than kernel-based profiling. Also, due to the
added delay required to deliver the signal, this method is
less accurate as well.
whether we can change value of an interval timer used for profiling ?

you mean by "control"?
