I have been busy lately and once again I will only add interesting links. These are about memory leaks hunting in the JVM. Memory leaks can be hard to spot and these articles were published while I was facing the same problems in my company. So thanks to Java’s community, I have been able to quickly identify the potential origins of the leaks.
Read this very interesting article which also has links to other blogs which deal the issues of using ThreadLocal. The Art of war blog
And this article about Java threads stack which can lead, when not properly sized, to “Out of memory exceptions” even with enough free heap space and lost threads.http://www.javablogs.com/Jump.action?id=215672
And this thread about -Xss JVM option and ulimit on Linux http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=261344&tstart=0
