Django fork of amazing memory leaks tracking application for python wsgi - the Dowser
Python CSS
branch: master

Merge pull request #6 from py-sos/master

latest commit f462f9e575
@munhitsu authored



Based on: Dowser

The original Dowser is WSGI enabled. Unfortunately, not all Django hosting providers use WSGI. In daily development the most common usage pattern is ./ runserver which is not using WSGI. That's the story why this fork was created.

In the other words the target of this project is to provide easy to use and install Django app to debug your memory leaks.

Following enhancements have been implemented on top of original Dowser:

  • long term analysis, 1m, 1h, 1d, 4w buffers
  • optimization by moving from lists to python deque
  • server load optimization by moving charts to google chart
  • only authenticated superuser can view analysis (Django specific)

pip install django-dowser
# or latest master
pip install git+git://

urlpatterns += patterns('',
    (r'^dowser/', include('django_dowser.urls')),

location = django-dowser
recipe = zerokspot.recipe.git
