Before starting roumon, the go app which shall be monitored needs to be prepared to export pprof infos via http.


The program which shall be monitored needs to run a pprof server.

Import pprof into you program:

import _ "net/http/pprof"

Run a webserver which will listen on a specific port:

go func() {
    log.Println(http.ListenAndServe("localhost:6060", nil))

Start your program and check that the pprof site is available in you web-browser: http://localhost:6060/debug/pprof


Start roumon in from your command line interface. Use optional arguments if needed.

For example roumon -debug=logfile -host= -port=8081 will start the routine monitor for the pprof profiles exposed to and write a debug logfile to ./logfile.

Run roumon with -h or --help to see all commandline argument options:

Usage of roumon:
  -debug string
        Path to debug file 
  -host string
        The pprof server IP or hostname (default "localhost")
  -port int
        The pprof server port (default 6060)

From within the Terminal User Interface (TUI) hit F1 for help F10 or ctrl-c to stop the application.
