Memprof 0.6 has been released
MemProf is a tool for profiling memory usage and finding memory leaks. Its two major features are: Memprof 0.6
- It can generate a profile of which functions in your program have allocated memory, and how much was allocated by each function and by the functions it calls.
- It can scan memory and find memory blocks that you've allocated but are no longer referenced anywhere.
MemProf works by pre-loading a library to override the C library's memory allocation functions and does not require you to recompile your program.
One advantage MemProf has over some other similar tools that are available is that it has a nice GUI frontend and is relatively easy to use.
