Bug#858858: ITP: heaptrack -- heap memory profiler for Linux

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Anton Gladky <gladk@debian.org>

* Package name    : heaptrack
  Version         : 1.0.0

  Description     : heap memory profiler for Linux

Heaptrack traces all memory allocations and annotates these events with stack traces. Dedicated analysis tools then allow you to interpret the heap memory profile to:

  - find hotspots that need to be optimized to reduce the memory footprint of your application
  - find memory leaks, i.e. locations that allocate memory which is never deallocated
  - find allocation hotspots, i.e. code locations that trigger a lot of memory allocation calls
  - find temporary allocations, which are allocations that are directly followed by their deallocation
