I've installed a Java Application that uses JVM settings. I've an AIX machine with 4 GB RAM but application crash when I tell that to use up to 1 Gb. Someone told me it is a JVM limitation that I can't modify. Is it true? Someone can tell me how can I verify this information? Thanx
I am having the same problem. I am using Sun's jdk1.4.1_01 on a Linux box with 4GB RAM, and I cannot start java with a heap larger than 1.7GB without getting a memory error. I searched around and saw something hinting that the OS swap space needs to be at least as large as the max heap size. I don't know if this is true, but I added a 2GB swap file to complement the 2GB swap partition there already, but it didn't get me anywhere. What am I missing?
