Help me with PermGen:OutOfMemoryException
Posted by sureshkrishna on September 28, 2007
I have a plugin developed for and AJAX based application with the help of Platform + EMF + WTP combination.
Many of the clients who report this out of memory have following conditions…
# Eclipse or Windows OS is not shut down for a long time; nearly for days.
# After a long time of inactivity on eclipse, Whenever a client clicks on any of the action or an editor, application just hangs.
# When a client is working on this application for a long time CPU goes 100% and except killing the eclipse application there is not other way.
Of course at this point of time i have no idea, what makes application crash with PermGen Error. There could be some thing wrong with the plugins that we made, but at the same time i dont get any error log for this PermGen:OutOfMemoryException.
I would appreciate if anyone can let me know about some of the utilities that i can use to find out the root cause.
Anykind of suggestions and solutions will be appreciated.
