Some memory space in Jira always is full. I tried to configure it but still it is full as it is shown below.

Could everyone help me?

The JVM is at 65%, which seems pretty reasonable? 

The spaces shown below, like PS Surviror Space or MetaSpace which are at 0%, you don't need to worry about them. 

It's the expected behavior. 

Although if you are experiencing slow performance and JVM keeps running out, then you can increase it further. 
But I think its working fine.

Thanks for your response.you mean that there is no worry for the spaces which is shown as full?

Yes, no need to worry about it. This is because your MetaSpace argument is not configured. 

You can refer to this KB: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/the-jira-applications-memory-information-screen-displays-0-free-metaspace-873885725.html

And you don't need to worry about Eden Space either. Because on creation of objects, they are allocated some memory in Eden Space and when the Eden Space gets full, it triggers a minor garbage collection where objects are either destroyed or moved to a Survivor Space.

Um, this is not a problem, your memory looks fine.  What makes you think the metaspace usage is a problem?

Hi.because is seems full.we are using jira service desk in an enterprise company and I was wondering if there would be a problem in the future related to the memory space.

Hi Maryam


If this is about full metaspace you don't have to worry about it. See KB article
