      Description

      Hi,

      Our application has major memory leak issue and crashes during a 12 hour test. We tried analyzing the trend through VisualVM and it has been very helpful. The tool is amazing with the kind of detail its provides us.

      The tool does capture the flow and size of JVM from start of instance and this can be used but the problem occurs when the memory issue crashes the tool and thus the data captured by the tool is lost.

      We wanted to request a feature whereby the heap dump, thread dump and application snapshot can be automatically be captured and stored at a predefined location after every say 2 hours etc.

      We tried using vbs for automation but the tool does not have much of keyboard shortcuts that vbs can use to capture the date.

      Any help to get this automation done will be highly appreciated.

      Regards,
      Jerry
