PyCon US talks on memory usage and gdb

Various people have been asking for the slides to my PyCon US talks, so here goes.

"Dude, Where's My RAM?" - A deep dive into how Python uses memory

Slides can be found here in ODP format (2.7M) and here as a PDF (2.5M)

To answer some of the questions asked about the gdb-heap tool:

  • I've used it with both Python 2.6 and Python 2.7 as the Python running inside gdb
  • I've used to analyze the memory usage of Python 2.4, 2.6, 2.7, 3.1 and 3.2
  • If anyone wants to work on extending this (e.g. adding PyPy support), I'm attending the sprints until Thursday

Using Python to debug C and C++ code (using gdb)
The slides can be seen here

(BTW, these were built using slippy, which I like a lot.  I first tried using rst and rst2s5 but ran into lots of aspect ratio issues when trying it out on a projector, so I fixed up the s5 html into slippy's html.  Thanks to Ned Batchelder for showing me slippy)
