#Introduction

OOMAnalyser is a web page to analyse and explain the OOM message of a Linux kernel. The analysis is performed automatically in the browser. You get a summary and a list of (almost) all parameters with their values and a short explanation. Among them are also 2 diagrams that illustrate the memory usage.

OOMAnalyser consists of a web page where the OOM message is copied into the input field. JavaScript code extracts the data and displays the details. All processing takes place in the browser. No data is transferred to any server. Therefore, confidential OOM messages can also be analyzed, and the analysis can be performed in environments without an Internet connection.

This project is written in Python and uses Transcrypt to translate Python code into JavaScript.

The current online version is available at https://www.carstengrohmann.de/oom/ .

#Installation

Installing OOMAnalyser is quite easy since OOMAnalyser consists only of two files, an HTML file and a JavaScript file. Both can be stored locally to use OOMAnalyser without an Internet connection.

#Installation steps

  1. Open https://www.carstengrohmann.de/oom/ in a browser
  2. Browse down to the paragraph "Local Installation" at the end of the document
  3. Download the HTML file and the JavaScript file to the main directory
  4. Open the file OOMAnalyser.html in your favourite browser

  • Set up the Python virtual environment:

      # virtualenv env
      # . env/bin/activate
      # env/bin/pip install -Ur requirements.txt
    
      or
    
      # make venv
    

#Build OOMAnalyser

# . env/bin/activate
# transcrypt --build --map --nomin -e 6 OOMAnalyser.py
# rollup --config rollup.config.mjs

or

# make build

#Usage

  • Change into the source directory and start your own small web server.

  • Start Python built-in web server:

      # python3 -m http.server 8080 --bind 127.0.0.1
    
      or
    
      # make websrv
    
  • Open the URL http://localhost:8080/OOMAnalyser.html in your favorite browser.

#Publish a new release

#Naming

  • NEW_VERSION - Version string of the new version e.g. 0.5.0
  • NEW_GIT_VERSION - Git version string of the new version e.g. v0.5.0

#Steps

  1. Commit all open changes

  2. Finalise changelog and add a new "Note" section to OOMAnalyser.html
