How can I monitor memory usage for Headless application?

[ Edited ]

Hi Guys,


I think my headless application takes memory more than 3MB and I got the exception as "out of memory". I already read https://developer.blackberry.com/native/documentation/core/com.qnx.doc.ide.userguide/topic/memory_ba... but


I don't understand 100% and my Momentics IDE always not responding during analyze the memory.


I also use MemoryInfo.memoryUsedByCurrentProcess() but I think it's not the same memory usage on headless.


Anybody here know how to get the memory usage of the headless application?


Thank you,

The memory cap of 3MB only counts the memory taken in the heap by your application. So, only your "malloc"s and "new"s are counted.

In momentics, you need to look at the heap memory.
