    Hello. I am working through the "final" stages of my first iPhone app and am curious about some of the performance tools and how to best utilize them. I have discovered using the Allocations tool for solving memory issue but I have also noticed that this tool will show me a running total for live memory and total used memory. Is there a way to correlate this data to the locations in my program using this tool? I noticed during one part of execution my program spiked to about 31MB of live memory and I would like to try to hone in on that area and take a closer look at what's going on.

    Also, if anyone knows any good sites with information on these performance tools I would be very grateful. Thanks.

    I have checked out this page but wasn't terribly impressed and didn't find the information I was looking for. What I did wind up doing was switching to the "Leaks" tool and I found a leak from there. I would like like to know however if it is possible when using the "Allocations" tool to review a run in a way that will show what variables are allocated at what time during the run.

    Thanks though for the site.
