We are using AEM 6.2 author instance and we ran into lot of performance issues lately. From the logs we found that the error is related to heap memory so we requested for a dump from server team so the we can analyse the memory leak issue
Repository size: 250 GB
Free space : 400 GB
RAM: 64 GB
Heap was 12 GB and we decided to increase to 14GB as we assumed the out of memory is because of the heap size but still we faced slowness in AEM author and CPU load is increasing rapidly.
While we analyse the heap dump, I would like to know how to determine the size requirement of the RAM for the machine and Heap memory for AEM.
Also any suggestions/ links which we can follow to determine the root cause of slowness would be much appreciated. Please let me know if more details are required
