*Do NOT use
Memory.\*.Large2 as the
Large2 metrics only count the physical ram used. This means the number varies based on the behavior of applications other than Chrome making it near meaningless. Yes, they are currently in the default finch trials. We're going to fix that.
Note, these channels are for developer coordination and NOT user support. If you are a Chromium user experiencing a memory related problem, file a bug instead.
|firstname.lastname@example.org||Discussion group for all things memory related. Post docs, discuss bugs, etc., here.|
|email@example.com||Google internal version of the above. Use sparingly.|
|https://chromiumdev.slack.com/messages/memory/||Slack channel for real-time discussion with memory devs. Lots of C++ sadness too.|
|crbug Performance=Memory label||Bucket with auto-filed and user-filed bugs.|
|crbug Stability=Memory label||Tracks mostly OOM crashes.|
Yay! Please file a memory bug.
If you are willing to do a bit more, please grab a memory infra trace and upload that. Here are instructions for MacOS. (TODO: Add instructions for easily grabbing a trace for all platforms.)
Great! First, sign up for the mailing lists above and check out the slack channel.
