Show the status of internal memory pools.

Description Jump to heading

The show pools command displays a list of memory pools and their statuses.

As of version 2.7r1, there are options for filtering and sorting the output.

By default, the command does not sort the output. If byname is specified, it is sorted by pool name. If bysize is specified, it is sorted by item size in reverse order. If byusage is specified, it is sorted by total usage in reverse order, and only used entries are shown.

To limit output to the first number of lines, specify that number as an argument.

To report only pools beginning with a given string, specify the string after the match argument.

The reported total only concerns pools matching the filtering criteria.

Below, we call show pools to see the status of internal memory pools:

bash
echo "show pools" | \
sudo socat stdio tcp4-connect:127.0.0.1:9999
bash
echo "show pools" | \
sudo socat stdio tcp4-connect:127.0.0.1:9999
output
bash

Show pools whose names start with string quic and sort by total usage:

bash
echo "show pools match quic byusage" | \
sudo socat stdio tcp4-connect:127.0.0.1:9999
bash
echo "show pools match quic byusage" | \
sudo socat stdio tcp4-connect:127.0.0.1:9999
