Mono memory profiling


Trying to run Mono memory profiling on Xamarin.Mac application. New XamarinProfiler.Mac is not letting choose .app package for running. And the environment variable (MONO_ENV_OPTIONS) in Custom Mode is not working anymore, it's just closing application when this environment variable is present.
Anybody knows a way to run Mono memory profiler (not Instruments!) on Xamarin.Mac application?

I'm using latest stable channel. XS 5.5.4 (build 15)

    The Xamarin Profiler doesn't support profiling Mac apps at the moment, but we are working on adding support.

    As for the old mono log profiler - it's possible that it doesn't support Xamarin.Mac 2.0, but I'm not sure why or if that's even the case. If you file a bug for Xamarin.Mac with details, we'll investigate.

    Nina, thank you for the response.
    Our application is leaking memory and "Instruments" shows nothing but increase of the VM size, without any helpful information. Is there any way to find memory leaks in managed code of Xamarin Mac application right now? Our release is pushed back because of this.
