func MemProfile(p []MemProfileRecord, inuseZero bool) (n int, ok bool)

Defined in


MemProfile returns a profile of memory allocated and freed per allocation site.

MemProfile returns n, the number of records in the current memory profile. If len(p) >= n, MemProfile copies the profile into p and returns n, true. If len(p) < n, MemProfile does not change p and returns n, false.

If inuseZero is true, the profile includes allocation records where r.AllocBytes > 0 but r.AllocBytes == r.FreeBytes. These are sites where memory was allocated, but it has all been released back to the runtime.

The returned profile may be up to two garbage collection cycles old. This is to avoid skewing the profile toward allocations; because allocations happen in real time but frees are delayed until the garbage collector performs sweeping, the profile only accounts for allocations that have had a chance to be freed by the garbage collector.

Most clients should use the runtime/pprof package or the testing package’s -test.memprofile flag instead of calling MemProfile directly.
