Re: [mat-dev] Missing figures in "List objects with outgoing references" report?

Francis,

MAT is showing that the HashMap @ 0xACE5CFB0 is retaining 115,395,160 bytes. You expanded down into a single HashMap$Entry @ 0xAF761F50 which retains 3,282,160 bytes. Most likely, the rest of the 115,395,160 bytes are retained in other HashMap$Entry objects in the HashMap (and remember that some implementations of HashMap do not have a flat Entry table, but in addition may have a next entry that creates a sort of tree of entries). It's also possible that the objects within this HashMap$Entry reference each other, and so there may not be a clear retainer. I would recommend showing the retained set of the HashMap to see the histogram of what it retains.

[mat-dev] Missing figures in "List objects with outgoing references" report?

Sent by:

Hi:

I'm analysing my Java application for possible memory leaks and the MAT tool is telling me that some
"statistics" classes are taking up 189 MB of heap. When I select the "List objects with outgoing references" report
and start drilling down it suggests that the "ReferencedFileTypeStatistic" class is using up the memory.

However, when I expand this reference in the report the expanded figures do not add up to the total for
that object (see screenshot below):



As you can see, the total for the ReferencedFileTypeStatistic object is using 1,535,640 bytes. However, the individual
components do not add up to this total. Is this behaviour expected? The map, link_pattern and suffix_type_stat objects
are all ones I expect to see for this object and are approximately the right size.

So far MAT has proven to be a really useful tool and helped in identifying leaks so they could be fixed.

I'm at a loss to explain what is taking up the rest of the memory based on this report - any advice would be gratefully
received.

Kind regards,

- Francis.
