Some users think that when the IDM JVM runs out of memory (when you start getting java.lang.outOfMemory errors in trace) IDM will actually loose events (in the sense that it stops caching events).  Is that what happens?


It would be unlikely that the events would not be cached at all because the event caching doesn't go through any java code. However, it is not outside of the realm of possibility that the events get pulled out of the cache and thrown away after not processing successfully.
