For now, we are making the minimal possible changes in order to understand what is important for the performance of our program; this change is simple and mirrors toop code in the Java implementation.

Profiling Go programs with pprof – Julia Evans

Support for profiling benchmarks built with the standard testing package is built into go test. We’ll time the program using Linux’s time utility with a format that shows user time, system time, real time, and maximum memory usage:. Then when it comes time to analyze ttool memory usage, you can decide where you want inuse memory or total allocation counts!

How did you do that, go tool pprof?! I wrote an even simpler Go program to get the simplest possible heap profile. If we list FindLoops we can see that much of it is right at the beginning:.

Add 1 go leakyFunction wg wg.

Profiles can then be visualized with the pprof tool: To find out why the garbage collector is running so much, we have to find out what is allocating memory.


Symbol looks up the program counters listed in the request, responding with a table mapping program counters to function names. What kinds of profiles can I get? Now the samples we are examining are memory allocations, not clock ticks.

Profile responds with the pprof-formatted cpu profile. Do calls f with a copy of the parent context with the given labels added to the parent’s label map. Except as notedthe content of this page is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.

So you get a history of both allocations and frees for some sample of memory activity. StopCPUProfile only returns after all the writes for the profile have completed. This exception helps mainly in programs running without garbage collection enabled, usually for debugging purposes.

There’s no reason to use a map when an array or slice will do. For example, given this execution stack:.

A Profile is a collection of stack traces showing the call sequences tiol led to instances of a particular event, such as allocation. To use pprof, link this package into your program: This is a lower-level API than Do, which should be used instead when possible. While profiling, the profile will be buffered and written to w.

Functions may be omitted if they were determined to be unreachable in the particular programs or tests that were analyzed.

It is a no-op if the value is not in the profile.

The root nodes are the entry points of the package: The root nodes are the entry points of the package: For compatibility with various tools that read pprof data, profile names should not contain spaces. Functions may be omitted if they were determined to be unreachable in the particular programs or tests that were analyzed.

For that particular lookup, a map is not the most efficient choice. The CPU profile is not available as a Profile.

FindLoops function tol running in This contains 1 sample. SetBlockProfileRate in your program: Request func Handler name string http.

Profiling Go programs with pprof

Profiling a Go program The first step to profiling a Go program is to enable profiling. Now that we have a rough idea of the big picture, it’s time to zoom in on a particular function. To add equivalent profiling support to tool standalone program, add code like the following to your main function: In fact, in Hundt’s paper, he explains that the Java program needed just this change to get anything like reasonable performance, but he did not make the same change in the other garbage-collected implementations.

A large fraction of time is spent in recursive calls to DFS lineas would be expected from a recursive traversal. If we look at the pprof protobuf definitionyou see that a ppprof is mostly a bunch of Sample s. Now the program is spending most of its time allocating memory and garbage collecting runtime.

So the function to blame for the memory leak might be totally different than the function listed in the heap profile.
