Hello, Carl.

The beta version is uploaded to https://github.com/zjkmxy/memory_monitor.

> I assumed the memory allocation and releasing will keep a balance after a

> interval [a,a + t1] but not released in [a, a + t1 + t2], where t2 is long
> enough that no cache entries or PIT entries created in [a, a+t1] will
> remain. The recored blocks are thought to be "leaked", though there may be
> references point to it.

> to do it manually and it took me a lot of time. Recently I found I could
> use backtrace function to get the call stack and use scripts to convert
> address to line number. I'm writing it now. If you have interests in this
> trick, I can publish it to GitHub when it's finished before long.
