I run memory-analyzer on a dump from production environment created on

As first report I choose Memory Leak Suspect and it shows me two classes:
- org.apache.xalan.templates.ElemTemplate 29.155 instances occupy
227.620.440 (44,99%) bytes
- org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXParser 164 instances occupy 57.489.064
(11,36%) bytes.

Our application is a Web servlet use Xalan 2.6.0 tranformer to render HTML
pages from xml data.

Does anybody have such an error?

How can I investigate more?

Thanks in advance, Matteo.

Hi Matteo,

Is it expected that the parsers are kept by the application or not? If you
want/need to keep them, then I guess you will have to accept the "cost"
and try to re-arrange the memory settings of the server.

If you didn't expect these instances to be kept, then you can have a look
at the paths from GC roots, to figure out who is keeping them in memory.
In the generated report, there should be details for every suspect.
Normally, there (in the detaills) you should find already summarized info
about the paths from the GC roots to the suspect objects. In your case,
you should be able to see the common part of the paths to each of the
SAXParsers / ElemTemplates. Have you lookead at this already? Does it help
