Please check Memory Analyzer's "Getting Started" help section to get
familiar with the tool. On the Welcome page of the tool itself you can
find a "Tutorials" tab. These tutorials will guide you interactively
through the main steps of analysis. Try to use these hints while analyzing
your heap dump. In case you have more specific questions feel free to post
them here.

Hi,

you can have a look at our blogs -
http://dev.eclipse.org/blogs/memoryanalyzer

Two of them, which I think can be useful as a beginning, are:

http://dev.eclipse.org/blogs/memoryanalyzer/2008/05/27/autom ated-heap-dump-analysis-finding-memory-leaks-with-one-click/

http://dev.eclipse.org/blogs/memoryanalyzer/2008/04/21/immor tal-objects-or-how-to-find-memory-leaks/

If the heap dump contains a lot of things but you are interested only in
your component, then it may make sense to run a "Component Report" ->
press Ctrl + Q and type "Component Report". Then you can provide a regex
Pattern for the packages or class-names you are interested in, and the
tool will show you some details about the selected component(s).

If you have any concrete questions and need help - just post them in this
forum.

Regards,
Krum
