Memory leak

  1. So I have a problem with ram, I have 32 GB on my server and have the server running on 16GB however the free 16GB of ram fills up within 22 hours uptime. The minecraft server is generally still at 8GB used 8 free but my top commands show all ram is used then then server starts to freeze disconnecting players for 5-10 minutes then returns and repeats until a restart of the dedicated box is competed.

    Is there a way to determine which plugin could be causing this. As my daily process log never shows more than 22% ram used for any process but free ram is actually near 0 after 22 hours

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. I noticed memory leaks too since 1.6. From my experience this is not uncommon when using dev builds from new updates and plugins. They often get fixed by updates though.

    As far as I know the only way to detect them is by Java profiling which is not very easy imo.
