Measuring clipboard size

The clipboard display shows the contents of the clipboard, but not its size in bytes. Large clipboards can affect performance because memory in the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) supporting the Pega Platform holds the clipboards of all requestors.

You can use the Performance tool to see the size of your clipboard in bytes, or to track the growth and contraction of your clipboard over time.

  1. In the developer toolbar, select Performance.
  2. Click Add reading with Clipboard Size.

You can use the System Management Application (SMA) to learn the size of each requestor's clipboards and the size of each page.

  1. Click Designer Studio > System > Operations > System Management Application .
  2. Select a node, then click Requestor Management.
