Java Server Mode for messenger-service in Windows

I have seen plenty of threads on setting the server mode switch when running under a *nix OS but a cannot find a definitive answer for the windows service.

Thanks in advance

It should use server mode automatically.

In the manager console it displays 64MB available. The server has 2GB installed.

I am running version 2.1.5 on a Windows 2003 server.

for jdk 1.5, on windows with 32 bit processors client vm is the default, server class may not be checked:

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/guide/vm/server-class.html

regardless of whether it runs in server or client mode, the default max heap is 64 meg. you can use -Xmx2048m on command line to specify maximum heap of 2 gig. (-Xms is minimum heap if you want to allocate a lot of memory at startup time).

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/tooldocs/windows/java.html

i think these are both the same for jdk 1.4.x.

That’‘s correct. However, we’'ve configured the startup script to attempt to use the server VM whenever possible.

Also, we wouldn’'t recommend using a heap larger than 1GB.

gotcha.

Also, we wouldn’'t recommend using a heap larger than

1GB.

is that based on the previous statement that there is only 2 gig on the machine? or because JM shouldn’‘t ever need more than a gig? or is there some hidden message here? just curious, i’‘ve had to set large maximum heap sizes such as 2 gig on VMs of app servers to accomodate peak loads so i’'m curious about the context of your statement.

thx,

Which startup script must I modify for the Windows Service Application?
