From the article:
Heaptrack is a fast heap memory profiler that runs on Linux. It allows you to track all heap memory allocations at run-time.
Afterwards, the accompanying GUI tool can be used to find optimization opportunities in your code by analyzing the recorded profiling data. It allows you to:
- Inspect peak heap memory consumption
- Find memory leaks
- Count overall number of memory allocations and find temporary allocations
- Find small allocations with large overhead
