|High usage of memory and final CPU collapse [message #1759917]

we have a RAP (based on 3.x workbench, with Perspective, Views, StatusLine, Jobs and so on) Application deployed on Tomcat over a virtualized Linux system with 8 Gb RAM + 2 Gb Swap + 2 CPUs.
The application serves thousands of access per day and server is always on (no nightly restart).
Tomcat is launched with the following memory options:
-Xms256m -Xmx2048m -XX:PermSize=128m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m
After some (about 6-10) day of usage the memory of Tomcat process goes far beyond the Xmx limit; here are the values showed with Linux 'top' command:
Then, at some point, the CPU usage goes to 100%, both the application and Tomcat manager are unreachable and the only option is restarting Tomcat (not the whole system) and this restores to normal values and usage.
We used some profiling tools (JProfiler and MAT) and did some optimizations based on analyzing the Heap Dump, but still didn't find what is causing the real problem.
So we have some questions about RAP:
- are there some guidelines that we can follow in order to make sure that every user session is cleaned correctly?
- what tools or techniques can we use to analyze deeply the problem?
- why Heap dumps are so small (just about some hundreds of Mb in size) with respect to the total RAM (well beyond 2 Gb) usage by the Tomcat process? how can we inspect all the process memory?
Any suggestion is highly welcome!
Thank you very much in advance.
