This walkthrough shows the basic usage and workflow for the Allocation Tracker tool in Android Studio. Allocation Tracker records an app's memory allocations and lists all allocated objects for the profiling cycle with their call stack, size, and allocating code.
What it's good for:
Before using Allocation Tracker, profile your code with the Memory Monitor Tool. If you see many garbage collection events in a short amount of time, use Heap Viewer to identify candidate object types, and Allocation Tracker to determine where this is happening in your code.
Allocation Tracker records each memory allocation that your app performs during the profiling cycle. You tell Allocation Tracker to start recording and it logs allocations until you tell it to stop.
