How to determine heap usage?

Post by cduran » Wed Aug 07, 2019 9:05 pm

Running mp on an ARM using the minimal build. I would like to know if there are any built in methods for analyzing heap usage.

I suspect you're looking for gc.mem_free(). I think it's implemented for minimal ARM..?

Or micropython.mem_info(), if that's implemented.
