Can we Delete a hprof file in QC server??

Jump to solution

Hi,

We are on QC 12.53 Patch with windows 2012 and Oracle 12c.Recently we have noticed a huge file of size 9.3gb which was created in the QC server where the application was deployed (ALM Deployment folder\server)

The file name is called as Java_pid1792.hprof.Not sure what is this file ,however this is consuming a lot of space in the drive where the app is installed.

Could you please share your thoughts on what this file is and can this deleted from the location??.If we do so does it cause any issues to the application and any server reboot is required post deleting it??And is there a way to have this file created under different location in future.

Thanks,

These are java heap profiling and crash files.  If you aren't going to debug the problem, you can delete them.
