qtile top

qtile top is a top-like tool to measure memory usage of Qtile’s internals.


To use qtile shell you need to have tracemalloc enabled. You can do this by setting the environmental variable PYTHONTRACEMALLOC=1 before starting qtile. Alternatively, you can force start tracemalloc but you will lose early traces:

>>> from libqtile.command.client import InteractiveCommandClient
>>> i=InteractiveCommandClient()
>>> i.eval("import tracemalloc;tracemalloc.start()")
