Profiling Turbopack

On macOS

Install cargo-instruments (opens in a new tab)

cargo-instruments (opens in a new tab) version 0.4.7 is incompatible with our workspace setup, so to install it you'll need to clone it and install it from an updated branch:

git clone https://github.com/cmyr/cargo-instruments.git
git checkout update-deps
cargo install --path .

Make sure you have all the prerequisites (opens in a new tab) for running cargo-instruments.

Run the profiler

By default, the next-dev CLI will keep watching for changes to your application and never exit until you manually interrupt it. However, cargo-instruments (opens in a new tab) waits for your program to exit before building and opening the trace file. For this purpose, we've added a profile feature to next-dev which exits the program if no updates are detected within a given timeframe and there are no pending tasks.

To profile next-dev, run the following command:

cargo instruments -t time --bin next-dev --release --features profile [-- [...args]]

You can also run other templates (opens in a new tab) than the time profiler.

Once the program exits, the profiler will open the trace file in Instruments. Refer to the learning resources (opens in a new tab) to learn how to use Instruments.

Linux

Memory usage

# Install `heaptrack` and `heaptrack_gui`
sudo apt install heaptrack heaptrack_gui
 
# Compile with debug info but without the alternative allocator:
CARGO_PROFILE_RELEASE_DEBUG=1 cargo build --bin next-dev --release --no-default-features --features cli
 
# Run the binary with heaptrack (it will be much slower than usual)
heaptrack target/release/next-dev [...]
 
# Stop it anytime
 
# Open the GUI and open the heaptrack.next-dev.XXX.gz file
heaptrack_gui

On other platforms

We currently don't have a guide for profiling Turbopack on other platforms.
