NAME

Devel::MAT::Dumpfile - load and analyse a heap dump file

SYNOPSIS

 use Devel::MAT::Dumpfile;

 my $df = Devel::MAT::Dumpfile->load( "path/to/the/file.pmat" );

 TODO

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a class that loads a heap dump file previously written by Devel::MAT::Dumper. It provides accessor methods to obtain various well-known root starting addresses, or to find arbitrary SVs by address. Each SV is represented by an instance of Devel::MAT::SV.

CONSTRUCTOR

load

   $df = Devel::MAT::Dumpfile->load( $path, %args )

Loads a heap dump file from the given path, and returns a new Devel::MAT::Dumpfile instance representing it.

Takes the following named arguments:

progress => CODE

If given, should be a CODE reference to a function that will be called regularly during the loading process, and given a status message to update the user.

METHODS

perlversion

   $version = $df->perlversion

Returns the version of perl that the heap dump file was created by, as a string in the form 5.14.2.

endian

   $endian = $df->endian

Returns the endian direction of the perl that the heap dump was created by, as either big or little.

uint_len

   $len = $df->uint_len

Returns the length in bytes of a uint field of the perl that the heap dump was created by.

ptr_len

   $len = $df->ptr_len

Returns the length in bytes of a pointer field of the perl that the heap dump was created by.

nv_len

   $len = $df->nv_len

Returns the length in bytes of a double field of the perl that the heap dump was created by.

ithreads

   $ithreads = $df->ithreads

Returns a boolean indicating whether ithread support was enabled in the perl that the heap dump was created by.

roots

   %roots = $df->roots

Returns a key/value pair list giving the names and SVs at each of the roots.

roots_strong

   %roots = $df->roots_strong

Returns a key/value pair list giving the names and SVs at each of the roots that count as strong references.

ROOTS

   $sv = $df->ROOT

For each of the root names given below, a method exists with that name which returns the SV at that root:

   main_cv
   defstash
   mainstack
   beginav
   checkav
   unitcheckav
   initav
   endav
   strtabhv
   envgv
   incgv
   statgv
   statname
   tmpsv
   defgv
   argvgv
   argvoutgv
   argvout_stack
   fdpidav
   preambleav
   modglobalhv
   regex_padav
   sortstash
   firstgv
   secondgv
   debstash
   stashcache
   isarev
   registered_mros

heap

   @svs = $df->heap

Returns all of the heap-allocated SVs, in no particular order

contexts

   @ctxs = $df->contexts

Returns a list of Devel::MAT::Context objects representing the call context stack in the dumpfile.

sv_at

   $sv = $df->sv_at( $addr )

Returns the SV at the given address, or undef if one does not exist.

(Note that this is unambiguous, as a Perl-level undef is represented by the immortal Devel::MAT::SV::UNDEF SV).
