eclipse plugin doesn't show memory profiling options

Postby asleepsalad » Thu Sep 15, 2016 2:44 pm


I installed Yourkit 2016.02-b42. I also installed the plugin for eclipse IDE. I am using eclipse Neon (4.6.0). In previous versions of the plugin, I was able to set memory profiling options. This is no longer available. I have tried starting eclipse with -clean option but that did not work. I can only set the CPU startup options.

Have the memory profiling options been removed from the eclipse plugin?

They have been removed as dedicated UI controls a few versions ago.

You can start object allocation (I suppose this is how you used them) via adding corresponding startup options under "Advanced" -> "Other startup options". The options you likely need are "alloceach" and/or "allocsizelimit" - see detail here: https://www.yourkit.com/docs/java/help/ ... #alloceach
