Getting Size of Heap and Non Heap Memory in CFML
I was helping out a member of my CFUG with some questions about the JVM, and I wanted to point him to a way to see how big his PermGen is at runtime. Back in the CF6 days I published some CFML code to get the heap memory usage, but that does not include the PermGen, so here's how you get it:
<cfset mf = CreateObject("java", "java.lang.management.ManagementFactory")> <cfset memBean = mf.getMemoryMXBean()> <cfset heapMem = memBean.getHeapMemoryUsage()> <cfset nonHeapMem = memBean.getNonHeapMemoryUsage()> <cfoutput> Heap Memory: #Round(heapMem.getUsed()/1024/1024)#mb In Use (#Round(heapMem.getCommitted()/1024/1024)#mb Committed, #Round(heapMem.getMax()/1024/1024)# Max Allowed Size)<br /> Non Heap Memory (PermGen & Code Cache): #Round(nonHeapMem.getUsed()/1024/1024)#mb In Use (#Round(nonHeapMem.getCommitted()/1024/1024)#mb Committed, #Round(nonHeapMem.getMax()/1024/1024)# Max Allowed Size) </cfoutput>
What is the PermGen / What does the PermGen Store?
The PermGen is short for Permanent Generation it is used to store loaded Java class information and metadata. Once you application is fully loaded and all code points have been executed your PermGen typically stays level, unless you are doing dynamic class loading (eg with JavaLoader or some other custom class loader.).
