In our test scenario (see below) memory footprint has been increased between EAP 7.0.0.GA and current EAP 7.1.0.DR7 for more than 8% (~8MB) for Full profile and more than 9% (~6.5MB) for web profile. Could you please comment whether this is intended.
- Start EAP instance.
- Measure its memory footprint - try to get the lowest possible footprint, that means force garbage collection a few times right before measuring. We enforce GC 10 times.
We see an increase both in heap size (~ 29 vs. 34 MB) and the metaspace size (~ 64 vs. 68 MB) - these numbers are for standalone-full profile.
