I tried to test out the MIDIInDump example and found memory issue that keep increase 4Kb by 4Kb or even worse 16Kb whether the midi data is being dump on the screen, it can go from 10MB to 40+MB, after strip out the MIDI API t.setReceiver(r);, it doesn't caused memory spike as no data was received.

Tried to lower XMX and XMS parameter to 10m, the problem persist. How do I limit the memory usage or any idea to free up the data?

What exactly is your problem?

Generally we let Java take care of memory as needed, so if you are not running out of memory, why are you worried?
