What is Node Js actually mean?
Ryan Dahl who is the creator of NodeJs which truly understands the power of V8, powered the Chrome browser and extended it so that it can run on your machine as a standalone application.
It is completely open-source and anyone can use it, as it has an MIT license, for developing server-side and networking applications. It can run on all three Operating Systems i.e., Mac OS, Windows, and Linux.
What is V8 Engine?
How V8 Engine Works?
how to use the V8 modules
The node:v8 module exposes APIs that are specific to the version of V8 built into the Node.js binary. It can be accessed using:
const v8 = require('node:v8');
Let me walk through some of the V8 node modules in node js to get our desired output.
It is not as complex as it seems, is simply a function that returns an integer representing a version tag derived from the V8 version, command-line flags, and detected CPU features.
Returns: A Readable Stream containing the V8 heap snapshot Generates a snapshot of the current V8 heap and returns a Readable Stream that may be used to read the JSON serialized representation.
This JSON stream format is intended to be used with tools such as Chrome DevTools. The JSON schema is undocumented and specific to the V8 engine. Therefore, the schema may change from one version of V8 to the next.
Likewise, there are so many functions that you can use from here.... I hope you get a clear idea about what we want to say. #HappyReading...
