For us to fix this problem, we need to know where the leak is occurring. And to this, we need to know what files the process currently opens.

  • Install File Leak Detector Plugin and get the list of open files.
  • On Linux systems, check "ls -la /proc/PID/fd" which gives you the list.
  • On other Unix systems, check "lsof -p PID"
  • On Windows, use Process Explorer to obtain the list.
