Measuring clipboard size

Suggest edit Updated on April 5, 2022

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.

Use Admin Studio to determine the size of each requestor's clipboards and the size of each page. For more information, see Managing requestors and the Admin Studio help.

  1. Click Admin Studio ResourcesRequestors.
  2. In the options menu, click Analyze clipboard.
