Getting Started

The lambda-leak detector should be used within a unit testing environment, like mocha, to capture and diagnose potential resource leaks. The following example demonstrates how to use the leak detector inside a unit test.

'use strict';
 
const lambdaLeak = require( 'lambda-leak' );
 
const handler = require( 'my-lambda-handler-module' );
 
describe( 'myModule', function() {
 
    describe( 'handler', function() {
 
        it( 'detect leak in my handler', function( done ) {
 
            const state = lambdaLeak.capture();
 
            handler( {/* event*/, { /* context */}, function( err, result ) {
 
                if( err ) {
 
                    return done( err );
                }
 
                let difference = state..getDifferenceInHandles();
 
                if( difference.length > 0 ) {
 
                    console.log( 'leaks', difference );
 
                    // leaks detected
                    done( new Error( 'leaks detected' ) );
                }
 
                done();
            });
        });
    });
});
