Hello,

Facing a little problem :roll: . I have an application hosted on Websphere 5.x. My application generates Java Heap Dumps and Java Core dumps though I haven't configured it explicitly anywhere in any script or through the Admin Console.

I found from IBM site that the environment variable IBM_HEAPDUMP = true will generate heap dumps explicitly. I can try to stop by setting IBM_HEAPDUMP = false.

However I don't know whether the above method is right or not. Further more why is the application generating these dumps without any prior configuration is still un-answered.

The application doesn't through any OutOfMemory Exception. Hence the possibility of these dumps being created due to this exception can be ruled out.

Can anybody who has faced similar problem throw some light on it
