Debugging, memory problem at the appserver

In the past when we saw there were memory issues that brought down the entire site. We have used a few methods but this was the most effective and helped us figure out the issue. Heap dumps are pretty good but they take a long time and tools have size/JDK/OS limitations to load them.

Application servers > server1 > Process Definition > Java Virtual Machine

Set this parameter in the Generic JVM arguments

The histogram gave a pretty good idea of the objects in memory that helped us trace the issue.
