Notes on CPU profiling in multi-process environment

If there are several server processes then the profiler have to be started and stopped for each process, and the profiling stats will be different for different processes.

In some deployment schemas (e.g. apache proxied by nginx) there is no way to make sure subsequent requests will be handled by the same server process so take this in account while using django-profiling-dashboard.
