AHAT - Android Heap Analysis Tool
java -jar ahat.jar [-p port] FILE
Launch an http server for viewing the given Android heap-dump FILE.
-p <port>
Serve pages on the given port. Defaults to 7100.
* Add more tips to the help page.
- Recommend how to start looking at a heap dump.
- Say how to enable allocation sites.
- Where to submit feedback, questions, and bug reports.
* Dim 'image' and 'zygote' heap sizes slightly? Why do we even show these?
* Let user re-sort sites objects info by clicking column headers.
* Let user re-sort "Objects" list.
* Show site context and heap and class filter in "Objects" view?
* Have a menu at the top of an object view with links to the sections?
* Include ahat version and hprof file in the menu at the top of the page?
* Heaped Table
- Make sortable by clicking on headers.
* For HeapTable with single heap shown, the heap name isn't centered?
* Consistently document functions.
* Show version number with --version.
* Show somewhere where to send bugs.
* Include a link to /objects in the overview and menu?
* Turn on LOCAL_JAVACFLAGS := -Xlint:unchecked -Werror
* Use hex for object ids in URLs?
* [low priority] by site allocations won't line up if the stack has been
truncated. Is there any way to manually line them up in that case?
* [low priority] Have a switch to choose whether unreachable objects are
ignored or not? Is there any interest in what's unreachable, or is it only
reachable objects that people care about?
* [low priority] Have a way to diff two heap dumps by site.
This should be pretty easy to do, actually. The interface is the real
question. Maybe: augment each byte count field on every page with the diff
if a baseline has been provided, and allow the user to sort by the diff.
Things to Test:
* That we can open a hprof without an 'app' heap and show a tabulation of
objects normally sorted by 'app' heap by default.
* Visit /objects without parameters and verify it doesn't throw an exception.
* Visit /objects with an invalid site, verify it doesn't throw an exception.
* That we can view the list of all objects in a reasonably short amount of
* That we don't show the 'extra' column in the DominatedList if we are
showing all the instances.
* That InstanceUtils.asString properly takes into account "offset" and
"count" fields, if they are present.
* InstanceUtils.getDexCacheLocation
Reported Issues:
* Request to be able to sort tables by size.
Perflib Requests:
* Class objects should have java.lang.Class as their class object, not null.
* ArrayInstance should have asString() to get the string, without requiring a
length function.
* Document that getHeapIndex returns -1 for no such heap.
* Look up totalRetainedSize for a heap by Heap object, not by a separate heap
* What's the difference between getId and getUniqueId?
* I see objects with duplicate references.
* A way to get overall retained size by heap.
* A method Instance.isReachable()
Things to move to perflib:
* Extracting the string from a String Instance.
* Extracting bitmap data from bitmap instances.
* Adding up allocations by stack frame.
* Computing, for each instance, the other instances it dominates.
* Instance.isRoot and Instance.getRootTypes.
