Subject RE: Problem with tuning JVM (high CPU load)
Date Wed, 23 May 2007 07:12:32 GMT
Hi Ralph,

We are indeed running in a 64 bit JVM.  Thanks for the tip. Anyway, as
soon as we discover what is causing this problem, I will feedback to
this list!!

Are you running in a 64 bit JVM?  If not, then you aren't using much of 
that 16G.  However, I doubt the amount of memory has much to do with

I experienced something similar to this a year and a half ago. 
Periodically a thread would go into a loop. We had several problems that

made the problem diagnosis difficult.

The way our operations folks handled this was they wrote scripts that 
were able to detect when a cpu suddenly spiked and when that happened 
they immediately did a kill -3 to get a java dump and then killed the 
application and restarted it. Once the other problems were fixed it was 
easy to tell what the real problem was as that stack trace always showed

up in the thread dump.
