Im currently doing dynamic memory analysis, for our eclipse based application using jprobe.After starting the eclipse application and jprobe, when I try to profile the eclipse application by integerating it with jprobe, the eclipse application gets closed abruptly causing a Fatal error. A fatal error log file is generated. In the Fatal error log file, I could see that the PermGen space seems to be full. Below is a sample Heap summary which I got in the log file
I tried to increase the permGen space, using the command -XX:MaxPermSize=512m. But that doesnt seem to work. I would like to know how to increase the PermGen size via command prompt. I would like to know if I have to go to the java location in my computer and execute the above command or should I increase the PermGen space specifically for the eclipse application or Jprobe ? Please advise.
Any help on this is much appreciated.
