Build the JAMM Master Project.

This project includes all the implemnetation to measure the memoory of the Java Objects. We are going to build it and package it to a jar file so that we can use in our client to do memory measurements.

1. Get the jeblis-jamm client project from here.

2. Build it and package it to a jar file.

3. Specify the org.github.jamm.MemoryMeter class as the Premain-Class in jar file’s MANIFEST.MF.

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Archiver-Version: Plexus Archiver
Created-By: Apache Maven
Built-By: namal
Build-Jdk: 1.7.0_03
Premain-Class: org.github.jamm.MemoryMeter

Now your jar is ready to use (jamm-0.3.2-SNAPSHOT.jar).

I have added my project also built using above steps in here.

Build the JAMM Client Project.

1. Create a new JAVA project and add the JAMM-Master jar file built in above step.

TestMemory.java


public class TestMemory {

public static void main(String[] args) {

String str = "Namal Fernando";

ArrayList<String> strList = new ArrayList<String>();
strList.add(str);
strList.add(str+"1");
strList.add(str+"2");
strList.add(str+"3");
strList.add(str+"4");

MemoryMeter memoryMeter = new MemoryMeter().enableDebug();
System.out.println("main().General Measure : " + memoryMeter.measure(strList));
System.out.println("main().Deep Measure : " + memoryMeter.measureDeep(strList));
System.out.println("main().Count Child : " + memoryMeter.countChildren(strList));

}

}

2. Run the TestMemory class giving the below VM Arguments to point the JAMM-Master jar file (jamm-0.3.2-SNAPSHOT.jar) built in above step as javaagent for memory measurement.

-javaagent:/rezsystem/workspace/jamm-client/lib/jamm-0.3.2-SNAPSHOT.jar

Output will be looked like this.
