memory_watcher is a library that can be linked into chromium to trace the memory allocations. It works by hooking the system allocation/deallocation functions, and recording the actions. To use memory_watcher in chromium: (1) Compile the memory_watcher library (it is part of the solution by default) (2) Run chromium with these flags "--memory-profile -no-sandbox" (The instrumentation doesn't work with the sandbox) (3) Hit ctrl-alt-D to generate a dump of the memory allocations. This will create a log file called memorywatcher.logXXXX for every chromium process (where XXXX is the pid). The log file is a human readable text format, which can be further analyzed using the helpers in the "scripts/" directory.
