JVM Memory Profiling tool

Hey experts,

 I am running a Java Web Application using Web Logic, and I am getting an OutOfMemory error. I am sure that this is a memory issue since when the file that joost's utility classes is generating (in that place of the application) is less than 5MB a memory problem does not occur. I need a memory profiling tool to see the memory size that is trying to be allocated by the JVM...any help on where to find such tool??

1. Ensure if its a real memory leak or you need more heap for processing [ both are different ]
2. Since you are using Weblogic, try using JRA - Java Runtime Analyzer provided in JRockit JVM. Its already available in weblogic.

Just enable -Xmanagement and try to use JRA. Or find the tutorials of using it in weblogic documentation site.

If the heap after GC keeps increasing, you might have a leak. The best profiler i would recommend is OptimizeIt if its a complex application..

JProbe is too noisy and JProfiler sucks big time. This is based my experience of 4 years of performance tuning.

Guys, since my application is a complex one and it's all configured in Web Logic (i.e. it's not just a simple application that you run from an IDE)...what would be the best tool from the ones above??

JMemProf can be deployed in web containers.
JProfiler can be used in many application server. For details see the following link

I solved it by using an internal memory profiling tool inside WL's admin console..thanks for your help anyways!
