Object generations

Generation view distributes objects by time of their creation, and is helpful in finding memory leaks and performing other analyses of how heap content evolves over time.

When an object is created, it is associated with the current generation number. The generations are sequentially numbered starting from 1. The current generation number is automatically advanced on capturing memory snapshot. It can also be explicitly advanced with the help of Advance Object Generation Number toolbar button, as well as via API and triggers.

The generation represents an object's age: the smaller the generation number, the older the object. See how to use object generations in typical memory leak detection scenario.
