onis

(pronounced onis)

Onis gives you introspection into object counts of live running ruby process.

Install

$ sudo gem install onis

Example

$ cd onis/

$ cat test/stringpwnd.rb
require 'onis'
puts Process.pid
a = []
while true ; a << "foo" ; sleep(0.5) ; end

$ ruby test/stringpwd.rb &
[1] 26584

$ onis
PID        COMMAND
------------------------------------------------------------
26584      ruby -I lib/ test/stringpwnd.rb

$ onis -f 26584
Class                                         Count
--------------------------------------------------------
String                                        3483
Class                                         156
Array                                         55
Module                                        25
Regexp                                        9
File                                          8
Hash                                          7
Float                                         6
Object                                        3
...

Color!

$ onis -f -c 26584

Watch!

$ onis -w 26584

Web!

# config.ru or Rails metal

map '/onis' do
  run Onis::Web
end

How it works

  1. Onis drops a tempfile named after the pid onis.<pid>
  2. Onis then traps SIGUSR1
  3. When SIGUSR1 is sent to a process that has required Onis, Onis will dump the ObjectSpace and counts to that tempfile.

  • handle fork
