How to fix OutOfMemoryError?
Hello Pega Community.
Hello Pega Community.
Sometimes I see the OutOfMemoryError(GC overhead limit exceeded) error on our Pega environment. Unfortunantelly it is impossible to understand what is the root cause of this. So I decided to perform investigation of java memory dump when our Pega application works good and when it crashes.
So I have some questions - could you please provide the answers?
Q1: Which tools do you use to analize the memory dump for Pega Application? I started the investigation of the memory dump using Eclipse Memory Analyzer.
Q2: Do you have the common instruction how to analize the crash memory dump for Pega application? How to undestand which pages or objects take a lot of memory? How to separate Data Pages, Caches and unneeded ClipboardPages?
Q3: Is it possible to understand which thread / activity causes OutOfMemoryError?
Q4: Is it possible to see the content of Pega Clipboard? Which java classes store it?
Q5: Could you please provide the description and java sources for the following Pega classes: com.pega.pegarules.bootstrap.loader.PRAppLoader, com.pega.pegarules.priv.collections.map.ConcurrentMostRecentlyUsedMap, com.pega.pegarules.session.internal.mgmt.PRNodeImpl, com.pega.pegarules.session.internal.mgmt.PRThreadImpl, com.pega.pegarules.session.internal.mgmt.PRRequestorImpl, com.pega.pegarules.data.internal.clipboard.ClipboardPageImpl?
Q6: When Pega application works good, 2 objects(com.pega.pegarules.bootstrap.loader.PRAppLoader and com.pega.pegarules.priv.collections.map.ConcurrentMostRecentlyUsedMap) take about 45% of heap. Is it normal?
Thank you in advance.

Answer1- any tool can be used to analyze memory dumps ( Memory Analyzer, IBM heap dump analyzer etc)
Answer3-For this, you need to review caused by of OOM error trace, review PegaALerts for events occuring that time, also PDC for better understanding of all events on that node.

There are no any PEGA0028 alerts in logs. I have thread dump created when OutOfMemoryError appears. So I started investigated it using Eclipse Memory Analyzer tool. May be you know the sequence of actions to find OutOfMemoryError root cause?
