On Wednesday, November 4th at 11:00 AM ET, I'll be presenting How to analyze Java OutOfMemoryErrors for WAS traditional and Liberty: https://techtv.bemyapp.com/#/conference/5f9c908bb0ecc200206ac4d2

This session will include a live demo. You will have time to ask questions on the show!

Here's a sneak peek of the topics we'll cover:

  • Java OutOfMemoryErrors (OOMs) are one of the top 5 issues our customers face
    • May cause errors for user transactions, poor performance, and crashes
    • Near-OOMs may be even worse because the JVM enters a “zombie”-like state
  • Most common causes are:
    • Maximum heap size too small, Too many threads, Application memory usage, Runaway threads, Large caches, Memory leak, Too many HTTP sessions, Excessive native memory usage
  • To investigate
    • Review verbose garbage collection and javacore
    • Configure your JVM to produce heapdumps or system dumps on OOM
    • Review the heapdumps or system dumps in the free Eclipse Memory Analyzer Tool
