Continuous Performance Profiling

Computational complexity requirements The difference between exponential, linear, logarithmic and constant execution time of a program is critical for various use cases. Even if an algorithm is purposely designed to satisfy a certain complexity class, there are multiple reasons why it might not. An underlying library, OS or even hardware can be the root cause […]

Detecting and Locating Memory Leaks in Production Python Applications

A reference to an object, if not properly managed, may be left assigned even if unused. This usually happens on an application logic level, but can also be an issue inside of an imported package. If memory leak appears in production environment, it is very hard to detect and fix it in development or staging […]

Memory Leak Detection in Production Go Applications

Memory leaks are very common in almost any language, including garbage collected languages. Go is not an exception. A reference to an object, if not properly managed, may be left assigned even if unused. This usually happens on an application logic level, but can also be an issue inside of an imported package. Unfortunately, it […]
