Held Bytes and # of instances for a type

Post by mcohen75 » Thu Nov 11, 2010 5:39 pm

I've recently discovered the allocation stack sorting in the type/resource details tab. This is very helpful. When I drill down to the type/method, I can determine how many instances of a particular type are held by a potentially misbehaving class. Although I can see live bytes related to the instances I can't seem to figure out a way to see held bytes. Is this information available somehow? This is useful when optimizing memory use as it would help to steer me towards the most significant problems.

There is currently no way of showing or sorting on the number of held bytes for a call stack. Held bytes are only calculated for specific instances and presented in the instances list. However, it is a good suggestion and I have added it to our feature list for the next version.
