generate pretty graphs from heap profiles http://code.mathr.co.uk/hp2pretty

Latest on Hackage:0.6

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

hp2ps is a tool to generate PostScript graphs of Heap Profiles.
hp2pretty is a rewrite of hp2ps, implemented in Haskell, with
the aims of being maintainable, with more flexible output, and
more beautiful output. Currently hp2pretty outputs Scalable
Vector Graphics (SVG) only, though PostScript (PS) is planned.
Also none (count'em) of hp2ps' options are implemented yet in

(hp2pretty compiled with "ghc -O2 --make")

Essentially identical runtime!

Memory usage from 'top':
hp2pretty ~275M
hp2ps ~50M

Tests were run on 64bit GNU/Linux with ghc-6.12.3.

Time is real time averaged over 3 runs as measured by 'bash'.
Memory is peak usage as measured by 'valgrind --tool=massif'.

hp2pretty compiled via cabal-install with 'ghc -O --make'.
