We are running into out of memory issue on WAS 6, so we started monitoring the web sphere and heres what we found. The heap size remains very steady while the used memory fluctuates between 60 and 90%. java.exe process in windows task manager consume increaeses from 400 mb in the morning to 1.8 GB memory in the evening. we are on 32 bit OS.
java.exe keeps on consuming more memory and cpu never comes down is it a normal behaviour and is it accurate information. If not normal then what could be the cause. After we restart the WAS Service in the morning the memory usage is around 400 mb ..towards the end of the day java.exe memory consumption reaches upto 1.8 GB work around is to restart the WAS service. please help experts why Java.exe is consuming too much memory and cpu , the best approach to solve this issue.
