Allocation Tracker

IntelliJ IDEA lets you analyse memory allocations that your application uses. In addition to a table view, you can click the android_allocation_tracker_visual icon in the toolbar of the Allocations tab in the Editor to open a visual representation of your application's memory allocations:

android_allocation_tracker

When you hover the mouse over a segment on the graph, detailed information on the corresponding allocations appears on the right.

Memory viewer

You can analyze memory snapshots in the native Android .hprof format right in the IntelliJ IDEA Editor:

android_heap_snapshot

For more details, refer to Viewing heap usage for a process.
