If the Select recorded objects option is checked, the heap walker will restrict the heap snapshot to
recorded objects only. In this way you can focus on the objects that have been created
during a selected time span. If the option is unchecked, all objects on the heap will
be shown (excluding any objects removed by the overhead options below).
Note that the mark heap dump action provides a way to
select newly allocated instances since a particular point in time that has much lower overhead than
By default, JProfiler performs a full GC in the heap dump. You can select the weak reference types
that should cause objects to be retained in the heap dump. By default, soft references will retain objects
in the heap dump. If you deselect the "Perform a full GC in heap dump" setting, the heap dump may contain
unreferenced objects that have no path to a GC root.
