Update for Django 1.8

Project description


Based on: Dowser

The original Dowser is WSGI enabled. Unfortunately, not all Django hosting providers use WSGI. In daily development the most common usage pattern is ./ runserver which is not using WSGI. That’s the story why this fork was created.

In the other words the target of this project is to provide easy to use and install Django app to debug your memory leaks.

Following enhancements have been implemented on top of original Dowser:

  • long term analysis, 1m, 1h, 1d, 4w buffers
  • optimization by moving from lists to python deque
  • server load optimization by moving charts to google chart
  • only authenticated superuser can view analysis (Django specific)

Use django-dowser only on multithreaded servers. With forking, each fork will have it’s own Dowser storage.
