Hi All,

Well, now that you know the types of the objects which are using most of the memory, the next step is to find the code which produces those objects.

Perhaps you do not have customized objects for your application, and you just put everything into arrays of strings or something like that? Then yes, that is going to make your task harder. Another reason to use object-oriented design.

Paul, Thanks a lot for helping me, But the thing is we need to get that complete code snippet , so that we can ask application team to work with the same.


Is there any way to do that. I am trying to find out the code responsible for Leak suspect but not able to do so, i am finding which type of object it is. along with the memory address where it is.

This information alone may not help.

Thanks
Sekhar.
