How to get a Java Heap Dump


アトラシアン コミュニティをご利用ください。



If you receive the java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java Heap Space error and you have eliminated the usual causes, you may need to get a Java heap dump to determine the cause.


Getting a heap dump

To get a heap dump add the -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError parameter to your system properties.

For example in Linux:

CATALINA_OPTS="-Xms1024m -Xmx1024m -XX:+UseG1GC -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError -XX:HeapDumpPath=<heap_dump_file_path> ${CATALINA_OPTS}"

Next, reproduce the java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java Heap Space error.

The next time you have an out of memory error, a *.hprof file will be created that is approximately the size of your java heap, i.e. 1024m (according to the above example).

Please wait until it's completely written out (before restarting confluence) and attach a zip of this dump to your support case.

Please note that a large -Xmx may make it difficult to open the heap dump.


How to set the heap or permanent generation memory depends on your distribution, platform, and how you start Confluence. Refer to Configuring System Properties.
