Log how much memory a specific function is consuming

Hello all,

I’m having a problem that an Oban Job is consuming all the memory in my pod and crashing the application. But I don’t know exactly in which part I’m having the problem.

I did some research and came across this function :erlang.memory(:total) that checks the total memory amount used. So I can log this in different parts of the application to try to see where I’m having a problem, but that is not the ideal solution.

There is also some functions to check a function performance, but that is not viable in production.

Does anyone know how can I log how much memory a specific function used?

Thanks in advance for any help,


Can you get erl_crash.dump file from the pod?
Here are basic instructions for crash dump file analysis:
