Fwd: FW: Java heap memory is low but process memory isstill high

Hi everyone,

Just wondering if anyone has encountered similar things before I dig more
into Java memory management. So we found machines are constantly in high
memory usage although the “reported” memory usage from ElasticSearch is
low. A couple of points:

  1.   Java Heap Memory(top left chart) drops under 2G, which I guess is

mainly because of GC on old pool (bottom right chart)

  1.   FieldData usage is low (top right)
  2.   OS memory never drops (bottom left chart). When I login to the

machines, the Java process is still taking 12~13GB memory.

Anyone had similar problems before?
