Brian mentioned to me in IM that he has the automated memory-usage
measurements running again. Hooray! I just now remembered that
there is a tool that might come in handy: valgrind massif. It is
easy to use -- it takes only a minute to learn how to use it and get
a nice graph of your program's memory usage pattern over time.
Unfortunately there is a known bug in massif which causes it to emit
bad data, but hopefully that is because I was using massif on tasks
that were several orders of magnitude larger (in time and in memory
usage) than it was originally intended for.
