  2. A Guide to GC.stat A Guide to GC.stat
    Most Ruby programmers don't have any idea how garbage collection works in their runtime - what triggers it, how often it runs, and what is garbage collected and what isn't. That's not entirely a bad thing - garbage collection in dynamic languages like Ruby is usually pretty complex, and Ruby programmers are better off just focusing on writing code that matters for their users. 
    But, occasionally, you get bitten by GC - either it's running too often or not enough, or your process is using tons of memory but you don't know why. Or maybe you're just curious about how GC works! 
    One way we can learn a bit about garbage collection in CRuby (that is, the standard Ruby runtime, written in C) is to look at the built-in `GC` module. If you haven't [read the docs]( of this module, check it out. There's a lot of interesting methods in there. But for right now, we're just going to look at one: `GC.stat`.
