Until not so long ago most of us relied on Valgrind/Massif to find out, but this had a huge impact on performance and was not really practical for production systems. Gladly this has been slowly changing as more systems get upgraded to Linux releases with 4.x Kernels, where it's easy to set up tools like eBPF and perf...
