This sys module provides access to some variables used or maintained by the interpreter and to functions that interact strongly with the interpreter. It provides information about constants, functions and methods of python interpreter. It can be used for manipulating Python runtime environment.

sys.getallocatedblocks() is used to get number of memory blocks currently allocated by the interpreter, regardless of their size. This function is mainly useful for tracking and debugging memory leaks. To get more predictable results, we may have to call _clear_type_cache() and gc.collect().

Syntax: sys.getallocatedblocks()
Parameter: This method accepts no parameter.
Return Value: This method returns the number of memory blocks currently allocated by the interpreter but if it cannot reasonably compute this information then 0 is returned.

Example #1 :

Using sys.getallocatedblocks() method to find the memory allocated to interpreter.

# Python program to explain sys.getallocatedblocks() method 
# Importing sys module

# Using sys.getallocatedblocks() method
memory = sys.getallocatedblocks()
# Print result
