profiling memory usage

P: n/a
Hi,

I am looking for a method to profile memory usage in my python program.
The program provides web service and therefore is intended to run for a
long time. However, the memory usage tends to increase all the time,
until in a day or two the system cannot handle it any more and starts
to do constant swapping. Is there a way to look at which objects or
variables are taking the huge amount of memory space?

Thanks,

Eddie

The latest Python release 2.5 includes improvements to the memory
manager and *may* work better for you, it all depends on the root cause
of the problem. For more details, see the 5th bullet on this page
