For advanced troubleshooting you might need to capture a JVM heap dump. By default, the Enterprise Search Docker image is not configured to run with a data volume by the ECK operator. However, you can write a heap dump to the
tmp directory that Enterprise Search uses. Note that your heap dump will be lost if you do not extract it before the container restarts.
kubectl exec $POD_NAME -- bash -c \ 'jmap -dump:format=b,file=tmp/heap.hprof $(jps| grep Main | cut -f 1 -d " ")' # The Enterprise Search Docker images don't have tar installed so we cannot use kubectl cp kubectl exec $POD_NAME -- cat /usr/share/enterprise-search/tmp/heap.hprof | gzip -c > heap.hprof.gz # Remove the heap dump from the running container to free up space kubectl exec $POD_NAME -- rm /usr/share/enterprise-search/tmp/heap.hprof
