pyrasite-memory-viewer - View the largest objects in your processΒΆ

Pyrasite provides a tool to view object memory usage statistics, and the live value, of largest objects in your process. This requires urwid and meliae to be installed.

$ pyrasite-memory-viewer <PID>

This tool automatically injects the following payload:

import os, meliae.scanner, platform

if platform.system() == 'Windows':
    temp = os.getenv('TEMP', os.getenv('TMP', '/temp'))
    path = os.path.join(temp, 'pyrasite-%d-objects.json' % os.getpid())
    path = '/tmp/pyrasite-%d-objects.json' % os.getpid()

You can easily dump the object memory usage JSON data by hand, if you wish:

$ pyrasite <PID> pyrasite/payloads/
