Thread: Forcing garbage collection on server/vhost/application

    Default Forcing garbage collection on server/vhost/application

    I was wondering if there was a way to force garbage collection the server, vhost and application objects in Wowza through server side code. I've looked through the documentation but can't find anything there or here on the forum.

    Hello Graeme,

    Programmatically forcing Garbage Collection is not exactly straight forward. You can invoke a System command to suggest that the JVM initiates it but it will likely do so only when deemed appropriate based on various factors.

    However, if you are looking for a way to suggest GC to the JVM outside of programmatic means, you can do so in JMX/JConsole.

    Thanks Matt. It makes sense, I was wondering it could be forced but it sounds like it can't. Thank you for the quick response!
