Pega PRPC installed JVM creating Heap dump and causing entire File System occupied

hello community ,

we are using Pega 7.3.1 Pega CLM Installation,we are running on full capacity on the PRPC JVMs and we are planning for scaling but in between, we are observing the huge Heap dump file generating in our app server file space where we are hosting the Application.

I believe this is something internal to Pega core functionality, but are there any reference to know more about what causes this issue.

Thread Dump and Heap Dump , thread dump is something prpc creating because of some wait mechansim..etc and heap dump is something which JVM creates but is there a way to analyze and understand the root cause of this behavior.

(Analyze means are there any tools used)

please correct me if my understanding is wrong.

Hi Dileep,

There are multiple tools available online and you can also use tools like Eclipse Mat anlayser to understand the Heap dump.
