Frequent heap dumps and system load average

Dear Experts,

Performance of our development has gone worst. There has been frequent Heap Dumps and Paging, also System Load Average '/Kernel/SAPJVM/SystemProblemReporting/System Load Average' is over 133%.

We are using NW731 with EP core.

JVM parameters arememory are according to SAP recommendations








SCS, Application and Database are on single host.

Number of nodes=2.

Appreciate your assistance in analyzing and fixing the performance issue.

    Hi Kumar,

    I would suggest you to take 7-8 thread dumps in interval 10 15-20 sec when the utilization is high. Then find and map the corresponding Kernel ID with Thread ID of the processes causing high utilization. Also, use MAT for HEAP dumps to find problem in heaps, check for leaking loaders and memory leaks.

    Hi Balaji,

    Please try to generate heap hprof dump, by adding below parameters in configtool



    And after generating hprof file you can analyze it using memory analyzer.

    Hi Divyanshu,

    Either zip or direct thread dump format b00 is not supported for attaching. OOM and java_PID**** files are more than 4 GB in size.....

    Is there any other way to send the files....
