AHAT - Android Heap Analysis Tool
java -jar ahat.jar [OPTIONS] FILE
Launch an http server for viewing the given Android heap dump FILE.
-p <port>
Serve pages on the given port. Defaults to 7100.
--proguard-map FILE
Use the proguard map FILE to deobfuscate the heap dump.
--baseline FILE
Diff the heap dump against the given baseline heap dump FILE.
--baseline-proguard-map FILE
Use the proguard map FILE to deobfuscate the baseline heap dump.
--retained [strong | soft | finalizer | weak | phantom | unreachable]
The weakest reachability of instances to treat as retained.
Defaults to soft
* Add a user guide.
* 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
* [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?
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.
* Instance.getDexCacheLocation
Reported Issues:
* Request to be able to sort tables by size.
Known Issues:
* Line number decoding for allocations in proguarded classes.
