bug#17535: 24.3.91; Problems with profiling memory


From: Eli Zaretskii
Subject: bug#17535: 24.3.91; Problems with profiling memory
Date: Tue, 20 May 2014 20:02:25 +0300

1. Visit profiler.el and go to this function:

    (defun profiler-cpu-profile ()
      "Return CPU profile."
      (when (profiler-running-p 'cpu)
        (profiler-make-profile
         :type 'cpu
         :timestamp (current-time)
         :log (profiler-cpu-log))))

   Position cursor on "profiler-make-profile" and type "C-h f".  Emacs
   pops up a *Help* buffer saying:

     profiler-make-profile is a compiled Lisp function in `profiler.el'.

     (profiler-make-profile &key TAG VERSION TYPE LOG TIMESTAMP DIFF-P)

     This function has a compiler macro `profiler-make-profile--cmacro'.

     Not documented.

   Click on the "profiler.el" link in the *Help* buffer -- Emacs
   displays an error message saying "Unable to find location in file"

2. How to interpret the "memory profile"?  What does a line such as
   this in the profile mean:

  - execute-extended-command                                  973,272  20%

   How were the 973,272 bytes counted, and what are they 20% of?  The
   ELisp manual, where this facility is described, does not explain
   how to interpret the profiles, and neither can I find anything
   about that in the doc strings.

3. Displaying a memory profile after several minutes shows clear signs
   of overflow:

  - command-execute                                         151,652,741   0%
   - call-interactively                                     151,650,661   0%
    - dired-x-find-file                                      44,210,847   0%
     - find-file                                             44,210,847   0%
      - find-file-noselect                                   44,209,884   0%
  ...
        - normal-backup-enable-predicate                      7,091,148  -1%
         - file-truename                                      7,091,148  -1%
          - file-truename                                     5,910,436  -1%
           - file-truename                                    4,729,872   1%
            - file-truename                                   3,549,420   1%
             - file-truename                                  2,369,208   0%
                file-truename                                 1,179,936   0%

  etc.: I see no percentage numbers except 1%, 0%, and -1%.
