KDE's Applications Development Heaptrack

Heaptrack traces all memory allocations and annotates these events with stack traces. Dedicated analysis tools then allow you to interpret the heap memory profile to:

  • find hotspots that need to be optimized to reduce the memory footprint of your application
  • find memory leaks, i.e. locations that allocate memory which is never deallocated
  • find allocation hotspots, i.e. code locations that trigger a lot of memory allocation calls
  • find temporary allocations, which are allocations that are directly followed by their deallocation
