Zurihac 2019 - Heap Profiler Ideas


#1

I plan to do some work on the heap profiler during Zurihac this year.
I’ve written down quite a long list of possible projects if anyone
else wants to work on this with me. They are split into two
categories.

  1. Improving my replacement for hp2ps/hp2pretty which parses and
    renders eventlogs into an interactive HTML page. example
  2. General improvements to the heap profiler.

This is a great chance to understand how/why the heap profiler works and to make it better for everyone to use. There are projects for all abilities!
