Memory consumption MemShrink custom runs now available (a.k.a. AWSY) hosts the memory benchmark that the MemShrink team uses to detect memory consumption changes, and it automatically runs on every time mozilla-inbound is updated.

John Shoenick implemented support for measuring try builds, which means you can test the impact on memory consumption of a change you’ve made.  The instructions are here, but note that you need access to Mozilla’s VPN in order to queue up a run.  Ask in the #memshrink channel on IRC if you run into any problems.

Use the following try syntax to generate a suitable desktop build without running any of the usual try test suites.

try: -b o -p linux64 -u none -t none

At the moment, the best way to run it is to build (via the try server) an unmodified browser as a control, and also a second, modified version with your changes.  You can then compare the two points easily.

It only works with Linux desktop builds.  AWSY has a mobile page but custom runs for mobile are not yet available.

One reply on “ custom runs now available”

Is there a FreeBSD desktop build available? It would be a darn shame to do well on Linux but not test on FreeBSD.
