Navigator heap dumb files size is getting larger causing memory errors..ANything I can do besides increasing "Java Heap Size of Navigator Metadata Server in Bytes" size? I have 4 hprof files in my navigator_heap_dump dir. Do I need all 4 of them?

If you are not using Navigator in your project then you can
1. CM -> Management -> Configuration -> “Navigator Audit Server Data Expiration Period" -> default 90 days. You can reduce it to 45 days or less
2. Purge the Navigator old history and start again

If you have "Dump Heap When Out of Memory" enabled, a heap dump will be generated if the process runs out of heap.
The files generated can be deleted as they are only for debugging purposes. Navigator does not require them.
That said, you can if you are running out of heap, increasing the heap size is likely a good first try to resolve that issue.
