Hi,

In my java program I am getting out of memory exceptions. I do pass the JVM arguments and I am passing on my 8 GB RAM windows machine while debugging the program

-Xmx1024M

Is there a way I can monitor the JVM Usage gorwth while the code is running in eclipse

thanks
-anshu

Probably the first step that I would try is to use the JDK supplied tools to monitor this. In the JDK's bin folder you should find "jconsole" which if you start this after your program is running, you should see a list of JVM's running, one of which is your app. You can connect to this and jconsole will give you a view of the memory usage along with other info, thread count, classes loaded, etc.

Hopefully, jconsole gives enough info, but if not you would then probably need to go further, looking at memory profilers and the like. But they are more complex to get going.

If jconsole does not give you enough information you can use yourkit (in my opinion it's the best profiler I've used so far). It costs money but there is also a free trial period.
