Working with merged reference trees in JProfiler

This screen cast shows how to analyze memory leaks in Java applications or reduce memory consumption in general if the objects of interest are not all referenced in the same way.

Analyzing a single object and finding the path to a garbage collector root is not enough in that case and the merged incoming references view as well as the merged dominating reference view are helpful in finding out about the distribution of the actual incoming references and how to make a maximum of objects eligible for garbage collection.
