How to enable Heap updates on my android client

Posted by: admin March 11, 2020 Leave a comment


Under DDMS, there is a HEAP tab, and then I click my android application under ‘Devices’.
But it said:

Heap updates are NOT ENABLED for this client

How can I enable Heap update for my android application?

How to&Answers:

On the devices tab, there are a bunch of icons starting with a green bug. To the right of that is the “Update Heap: button which looks like a green cylinder that is half full. Press that button and the heap tab should be enabled. Click “Cause GC” to populate the Heap tab.

It is worth to mention one thing, you have to put in android:debuggable="true" in the AndroidManifest.xml (under Application tag) in order to see the process list appear under the available device/simulator (in DDMS). Even though you are not trying to run your application in debug mode.
