User Comments:
GUEST: Uploading Files

GUEST: Dunno.  

Was closing program, wouldn't close.  Force shut it down.



GUEST: Doing a SVN update on a project contected to a remote server via SFTP.

median1st: Not sure, because I didn't notice the trouble until alerted by NB. The OOM happened during load tests of a web application on Tomcat 8. During the tests the application was configured for really heavy logging, the log file grew to about 600MB during the testing period (10 to 15 minutes) and the log view in NB was open and following the log. The whole Tomcat server froze at a certain point completely, all threads waiting for ConsoleHandler. The time roughly correlated to the slowdown event, followed by OOM event reported by NB. 
In subsequent testing (after the Tomcat had been restarted, but NB hadn't) I kept clearing the log view periodically as soon as I started to notice the view to slow down following the log. The tests completed successfully this way.

GUEST: When my project was running for a long time, Crashed.

GUEST: Wildfly was running when I was making a break. After I returned ca. 20 minutes later I found this exception open.

GUEST: freeze
