=head1 NAME

Devel::Arena - Perl extension for inspecting the core's arena structures


  use Devel::Arena 'sv_stats';
  # Get hash ref describing the arenas for SV heads
  $sv_stats = sv_stats;


Inspect the arena structures that perl uses for SV allocation.

HARNESS_PERL_SWITCHES=-MDevel::Arena=write_stats_at_END make test

=head2 EXPORT

None by default.

=over 4

=item * sv_stats [DONT_SHARE]

Returns a hashref giving stats derived from inspecting the SV heads via the
arena pointers. Details of the contents of the hash subject to change.

If the optional argument I<DONT_SHARE> is true then none of the hashes in
the returned structure have shared hash keys. This is less efficient, but
is needed to calculate the effectiveness of the shared string table.

=item * shared_string_table

Returns a hashref giving the share counts for each entry in the shared string
table. The hashref doesn't use shared keys itself, so it doesn't affect the
thing that it is measuring.

=item * sizes

Returns a hashref containing sizes of various core perl types, C types, and
other size related info (specifically 'hek_key offset')

=item * HEK_size STRING

Calculates the size of the hash key needed to store I<STRING>.

=item * shared_string_table_effectiveness

Calculates the effectiveness of the shared string table. Returns a hashref of
stats. Currently this is

          'pv_unshared' => 7185,
          'raw_unshared' => 77264,
          'heks' => 3748,
          'pv_hv' => 77264,
          'hv_unshared' => 70079,
          'raw_shared' => 57675,
          'pvs' => 434,
          'raw' => 1833

It ignores malloc() overhead, and the possibility that some shared strings
aren't used as hash keys or shared hash key scalars.

=item * write_stats_at_END

Not really a function, but if you import C<write_stats_at_END> then
Devel::Arena will write out a Storable dump of all stats at C<END> time.
The file is written into a file into a file in the current directory named
C<$$ . '.sv_stats'>. This allows you to do things such as

    HARNESS_PERL_SWITCHES=-MDevel::Arena=write_stats_at_END make test

to analyse the resource usage in regression tests.
