I have been running Wildfire 2.4.4 for some time on a Linux OS (Slackware 10.2)
It has been running flawlessly for almost a year now with about 150 concurrent users.
We are now adding about 400 or more users to the roster bringing the concurrent users to about 2-300 and probably more once its fully integrated.
The issue I ran into the other day is the memory
Once we get about 200 people online as you would expect the default 64m is maxed out and shortly thereafter crashes wildfire.
I have poured over the documentation and forums and found no way to increase the heap size.
This is what I have tried.
in file: /usr/local/bin/wildfire
Line 6: #INSTALL4J_ADD_VM_PARAMS="-Xms=256m -Xmx=512m"
When I uncomment that line Wildfire will not start because other vm options are not set primarily the HOME
So looking further through that file I found
Line 228: INSTALL4J_ADD_VM_PARAMS="$INSTALL4J_ADD_VM_PARAMS $vmoptions_val"
So I am guessing that the first line is messing up this one?
Not really sure
Regardless I examined the script to see what developed those variables and found that if it exists it will read the file
Of course though that did not exist
I created a file /opt/wildfire/bin/wildfire.vmoptions
with the following
Upon restart I get no errors in nohup.out but the max memory is still only 64m
So to make sure it is actually using that file I through in some crazy stuff in the vmoptions file (things I know will cause errors)
Sure enough nohup.out threw countless expected errors. So that confirmed to me that it is reading the file and applying the variables or at least trying to.
However since that didnt work I also tried direct editing of the /usr/local/bin/wildfire file again to add the heap stack sizes but this time I tried editing line 228 to the following
Line 228: INSTALL4J_ADD_VM_PARAMS="$INSTALL4J_ADD_VM_PARAMS $vmoptions_val -Xms32m -Xmx512m"
Again I got no errors but no change in the memory either.
All this was done late at night so even with only 64m I was still under 10% utilization. So i though maybe I would wait till today to see if it requested more when it hit 30% or more and the number would then change.
Sure enough it hasn’'t.
right now its sitting at
38.31 MB of 63.31 MB (60.5%) used
And I am at a lost on how to change the memory size.
Any help would be appreciated.
