GC::Profiler

The GC profiler provides access to information on GC runs including time, length and object space size.

Example:

GC::Profiler.enable

require 'rdoc/rdoc'

GC::Profiler.report

GC::Profiler.disable

See also GC.count, GC.malloc_allocated_size and GC.malloc_allocations

Public Class Methods

GC::Profiler.clear → nil click to toggle source

Clears the GC profiler data.

 
               static VALUE
gc_profile_clear(void)
{
    rb_objspace_t *objspace = &rb_objspace;

    if (GC_PROFILE_RECORD_DEFAULT_SIZE * 2 < objspace->profile.size) {
        objspace->profile.size = GC_PROFILE_RECORD_DEFAULT_SIZE * 2;
        objspace->profile.record = realloc(objspace->profile.record, sizeof(gc_profile_record) * objspace->profile.size);
        if (!objspace->profile.record) {
            rb_memerror();
        }
    }
    MEMZERO(objspace->profile.record, gc_profile_record, objspace->profile.size);
    objspace->profile.count = 0;
    return Qnil;
}
            
GC::Profiler.disable → nil click to toggle source

Stops the GC profiler.

 
               static VALUE
gc_profile_disable(void)
{
    rb_objspace_t *objspace = &rb_objspace;

    objspace->profile.run = FALSE;
    return Qnil;
}
            
GC::Profiler.enable → nil click to toggle source

Starts the GC profiler.

 
               static VALUE
gc_profile_enable(void)
{
    rb_objspace_t *objspace = &rb_objspace;

    objspace->profile.run = TRUE;
    return Qnil;
}
            
GC::Profiler.enabled? → true or false click to toggle source

The current status of GC profile mode.

 
               static VALUE
gc_profile_enable_get(VALUE self)
{
    rb_objspace_t *objspace = &rb_objspace;
    return objspace->profile.run ? Qtrue : Qfalse;
}
            
GC::Profiler.raw_data → [Hash, ...] click to toggle source

Returns an Array of individual raw profile data Hashes ordered from earliest to latest by :GC_INVOKE_TIME.

For example:

[
  {
     :GC_TIME=>1.3000000000000858e-05,
     :GC_INVOKE_TIME=>0.010634999999999999,
     :HEAP_USE_SIZE=>289640,
     :HEAP_TOTAL_SIZE=>588960,
     :HEAP_TOTAL_OBJECTS=>14724,
     :GC_IS_MARKED=>false
  },
  # ...
]

The keys mean:

:GC_TIME

Time elapsed in seconds for this GC run

:GC_INVOKE_TIME

Time elapsed in seconds from startup to when the GC was invoked

:HEAP_USE_SIZE

Total bytes of heap used

:HEAP_TOTAL_SIZE

Total size of heap in bytes

:HEAP_TOTAL_OBJECTS

Total number of objects

:GC_IS_MARKED

Returns true if the GC is in mark phase

If ruby was built with GC_PROFILE_MORE_DETAIL, you will also have access to the following hash keys:

:GC_MARK_TIME
:GC_SWEEP_TIME
:ALLOCATE_INCREASE
:ALLOCATE_LIMIT
:HEAP_USE_SLOTS
:HEAP_LIVE_OBJECTS
:HEAP_FREE_OBJECTS
:HAVE_FINALIZE
