We are trying to configuring out a java memory leaks in our setup. We have got 6GB ram in linux box, java heap size is 1GB.

We started the process to check the memory leaking. Now the VSZ has been consistently increasing. When we started the process the VSZ was around 1.14GB now it has increased to 1.33GB.

Now VSZ is way beyond the java heap size. Would java heap size is related with VSZ ? Would this affect the application ?

Your help is needed.

Please see I am not completely aware of java programming . I am working as a test engineer.
