Create a Memory Leak Confirmation report


Uncover a memory leak trend using the Memory Leak Confirmation report. Compare heap size to several load-oriented metrics to determine that there is in fact a leak, not just a change in workload. The system highlights a leak trend by comparing the average heap size after a garbage collection with a memory increase, increase in users, or increase in volume.


Create a Memory Leak Confirmation report:

  1. From the top navigation, click...

      Problem Determination > Memory Diagnosis > Memory Leak

  2. Select a group and a server from the list boxes and click OK.

    The Memory Leak Confirmation report displays.

  3. Use the list boxes in the Report Control box to select a new group, server, date range, metric 1, 2, or 3 and click OK to rerun the report. If there is over 24 hours of data available, your report will show the last 48 hours. Otherwise your report will display the last 60 minutes.
