Can we halt on memory growth beyond a limit?

Paul DeBruicker
I'm trying to get some understanding about a process that uses a lot of RAM when it runs.


Is there a way to halt if/when RAM use doubles ?


Thanks

Paul

Hi,

You can start the VM with this parameter:

 --memory <size>[mk]    use fixed heap size (added to image size)

When the memory is reached you have an out of memory error.

Check --help on the VM.

I don't know, but just to clarify, you are wanting in in-Image flag to use as a breakpoint in your application code?
