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

--or--

2. Purge the Navigator old history and start again

@Vitali1,

 

 

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.
