      Description

      • We are using JMS to send and receive messages from queue asynchronously
      • We have observed a high heap memory usage by io.netty.buffer.PoolChunk - (heap dump: screenshot attached 1)
      • These PoolChunks are allocated during creation of a connection to the queue - 
        • From stacktrace(screenshot attached 2) - when we invoke jmsConnectionFactory.createConnection()
          internally the call goes to FailoverProvider -> AmqpProvider, which invokes ByteBufferUtil to create PooledByteBuffer
        • These buffers are created on the heap memory (io.netty.buffer.PoolChunk of 16 MB)
      • These PooledByteBuffer are not released from the heap memory even after the connection is closed. Due to which, the memory usage has increased.
