ActivityFrameMetrics

Detect janky frames with Android Nougat FrameMetrics. This library won't work (yet) with any Android SDK lower than 24.

Article which describes this library and FrameMetrics can be found on my blog: [FrameMetrics — realtime app smoothness tracking] ( https://medium.com/@froger_mcs/framemetrics-realtime-app-smoothness-tracking-3d8550413c1c#.ba3ahfmbb)

FrameMetrics

Starting from Android SDK 24 (Nougat) there is a new API to monitor application UI performance. In older Android version we were be able to analyse data from last rendered 120 frames for each aby with adb shell command: adb shell dumpsys gfxinfo framestats displays. Now thanks you FrameMetrics this data is available directly from code and can be analysed in realtime.

More about FrameMetrics can be found in documentation and Android Nougat what's new section.

ActivityFrameMetrics

ActivityFrameMetrics is small 1-class library which prints janky frames warnings to Logcat for each Activity.

Usage

Register ActivityFrameMetrics as an ActivityLifecycleCallback in your Application class.

public class MyApplication extends Application {
    @Override
    public void onCreate() {
        super.onCreate();
        registerActivityLifecycleCallbacks(new ActivityFrameMetrics.Builder().build());
    }
}

By default library prints Logcat warning for every frame which was rendered longer than 17ms and error for these which was rendered longer than 34ms.

Default values (and others) can be changed with ActivityFrameMetrics.Builder params:

new ActivityFrameMetrics.Builder()
        .warningLevelMs(20)     //default: 17ms
        .errorLevelMs(40)       //default: 34ms
        .showWarnings(true)     //default: true
        .showErrors(true)       //default: true
        .build();
