Server memory usage

Hello guys,

im really sorry to ask this question again. I went thru all threads and all posted solutions, but it still doesnt work on my Linux box. The server admin console shows always 64MB of max available memory. Java runs in server mode and i tried to adjust the min and max memory settings without success. Its a SUSE linux machine with 1GB of RAM. Is there somewhere a good doc which will help me? Is it possible that it doesnt get more memory because of other running apps like apache2?

Thanx Alex

Hallo Alex,

you want to add the Xmx and probably also Xms parameter to your start script. There is one parameter named INSTALL4J_ADD_VM_PARAMS (ore something like this) which is empty / commented.

INSTALL4J_ADD_VM_PARAMS=’’-Xmx128m -Xmx64m’’ should do it. You may also add the “-verbose:gc” or other JVM memory monitoring and tuning parameters which are described on http://www.tagtraum.com/gcviewer-vmflags.html to get a better memory monitoring.


Thanx for this small good tutorial. Works now
