The heap profiler records heap allocations, and exports heap dumps via Chrome tracing.
The code is divided into three directories:
- components/services/heap_profiling/ contains the core logic that records allocations.
- components/heap_profiling/ [this directory] contains
- Logic that hooks up processes to the heap_profiling service [depends on content/].
- End to end tests [depends on content/].
- chrome/browser/profiling_host/ contains:
- Logic that hooks up UI surfaces to the heap_profiling service.
- Logic to automatically upload heap dumps in the wild.
