Want to limit or reduce the number of HPROF files (dump files) being generated in our APM server where EM is running as a service.

As per a CA recommendation, the  jvm memory has been increased from 4g to 8g:

In the EMService.conf I see that you are running 4096m.  Please consider adding 4 more gig. to 8192m

These files were generated nearly after a month and I see EM is running without any issues before these file generation.  We would like to have a permanent solution to get this files not generated instead of manually deleting them.
