Hi Team,

I am getting heap dump and GC on my AEM server when doing soak test the following is the report.

Problem Suspect 1

One instance of "org.apache.sling.models.impl.ModelAdapterFactory" loaded by "org.apache.felix.framework.BundleWiringImpl$BundleClassLoaderJava5 @ 0x5c7e3e280" occupies 214,336,312 (29.68%) bytes. The memory is accumulated in one instance of "java.util.concurrent.ConcurrentHashMap$Node[]" loaded by "<system class loader>".

Keywords

These instances are referenced from one instance of "com.google.common.cache.LocalCache$Segment[]", loaded by "org.apache.felix.framework.BundleWiringImpl$BundleClassLoaderJava5 @ 0x5c1c77e70"

Can someone tell me how to proceeds

According to what I see, is that you only have 800mb of heap space. Seems to me you did not pass Xms and Xmx parameters to your publish instance. A production instance needs more than 1gb ram. Give it some more breathing room. For example 4gb.

Hi Thanks for your response

we have started JVM as per below

Strange. Looks legit to me.

Can you take a look at http://<youraemhost>:4502/system/console/memoryusage (the URL, not the path) and paste the content?

That should show your current memory configuration and free space.

Looks totally fine. (We have similar settings).

But your suspects are strange as they consume so little heap space. (214 MB for suspect 1, 79 MB for suspect 2).

Are you sure you didn't miss something else?

When we have OOM's on AEM, we find suspects holding 6 GB or more.

That is why I have to see whether it is a really need to worry and look the solution for it.  The full GC report are as per below
