inject memory allocation faults
Debug tool for Python injecting memory allocation faults to simulate a low memory system to test how your application handles MemoryError exceptions.
pyfailmalloc is based on the PEP 445 “Add new APIs to customize Python memory allocators” and so requires at least Python 3.4.
- failmalloc.enable(range: int=1000): schedule a memory allocation failure in random.randint(1, range) allocations.
- failmalloc.disable(): cancel the scheduled memory allocation failure
The version can be read from failmalloc.__version__ as a string (ex: "0.1").
