When I take a heap shapshot, it seems to never complete and the status says "Parsing..."
I'm on node v0.6.8. Are there node version requirements?
node >0.5.x but I haven't really make any sort of compatibility tests. Does it happen every time you try to take a heap snapshot? Are you using chrome with --remote-debugging-port or http://trac.webkit.org/export/head/trunk/Source/WebCore/inspector/front-end/inspector.html?ws=localhost:1337 ?
I just tried with v0.6.17 and it worked just fine. BTW, parsing is made by the inspector front-end so if you try with chrome canary and --remote-debugging-port it will use an stable version of inspector. You can also try with https://github.com/reid/rampant
Do you know if it works on ubuntu? That's what I'm on.
@scriby it should work. I think @vvo used it in ubuntu with no major problems.
I'm on Debian and yes I have seen situations where I had "parsing" and it never finishes. Sometimes I just had to close browser, relaunch node process and be calm.
Perhaps it is just a matter of heap profiler file size or race condition dunno. It seemed like this when I had the problem.
I'll dig further using ubuntu. Indeed, it could be the heap profiler as well.
I just confirmed this issue. Devtools protocol has changed. As I mentioned above, I'll grab a front-end copy from a stable chrome version to stabilize the project.
Fixes #3 and #5
