Cause

The Java Virtual Machine (JVM) generates a *java_pid.hprof  i.e. heap dump of the process, which can be useful for diagnosing and troubleshooting memory-related issues. The java_pid*.hprof file contains the heap dump information, including the objects and data in the heap at the time the dump was taken.

Resolution

Removing these files should be ok
