    Heap Size increase on Server Idle

    Kalyan Newbie

      Hi All,

      We are running a JBoss server with sun.rmi.dgc.client.gcInterval and sun.rmi.dgc.server.gcInterval values each set to 10 minutes. The following are the Full GCs that are captured when the server is idle for about 110 minutes. We have noticed that there is a constant rise of around 70MB in heap size for every 10 minutes, even when the server is idle. Can someone explain as to why there is so much of garbage generated/collected in every 10 minutes?
