Deep object deduplication.
If your app keeps lots of static data in memory, such as i18n data or large configurations, this can reduce memory retention.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
$ bundle install
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install dedup
This library is meant to be called on large static data structures loaded during boot:
SOME_DATA = Dedup.deep_intern!(YAML.load_file('path.yml'))
Keep in mind that it trades CPU during boot reduced for memory retention. It isn't meant to be applied on runtime data with reduced lifetime, but on static data loaded during boot.
After checking out the repo, run
