I would like to detect an
-XX:OnOutOfMemoryError="kill -9 %p"
I would rather rely on calling into a script that handles the ordering more deterministically i.e.
heapAndQuit.sh will then employ a method to find the
pid of the current process.
One simple way to identify the pid is to use the log file location your process is writing to
lsof | grep /var/tmp/<yourlogfileName> | cut -d " " -f1 | uniq
I will then use
jmap to dump and
kill -9 subsequently
