memprof (c) Joe Damato @joedamato http://timetobleed.com What is memprof? ================ Memprof is a memory profiler for Ruby that requires no patches to the Ruby VM. It can help you find Ruby level memory leaks in your application. How to use ========== require 'memprof' Memprof.start # ruby code Memprof.stats # more ruby code Memprof.stats Memprof.stop The above code will output 2 summaries, allowing you to compare which objects were destroyed and which are still around. Memprof.stats also takes an (optional) file name to write the output to a file.
