Pinned topic ISA 4.1-memory analyzer: how to make out the characters in the char[]

‏2012-08-17T08:18:04Z |
Hi,

I have a trouble in reading characters in char[] when I analyze heapdump.****.phd with ISA 4.1 memory analyzer.

I want to figure out what's in the string array that take up largest heap size. But what I can read is '\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000...' in all string arrays(see attachment). So I can hardly figure out what's the action at the business level leads to the objects.

My question:
Anyone has the same problem as above?
And how to translate these '\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000...' in char[] into a readable text?
Environment:
ISA 4.1 memory analyzer
Win XP
heapdump.****.phd
I've been blocked by the problem for a long time. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

    Hi,

    phd files do not contain the values of primitive files so this is why you can't see the proper value. In order to see the contents of the strings arrays, you need to get a system dump which will have all this information. See the Memory Analyzer help under 'Supported dump file types' for more information.

    Thanks
