This section describes how to change the memory settings for the Java Virtual Machine when running Aspire. It depends on how you are running Aspire. 

By default Aspire uses 1 GB of memory for evaluation purposes, but for production or development environments we recommend to increase this accordingly. Check the Hardware and Network Considerations for the recommend memory allocation settings.

Running in Linux from aspire.sh


  1. Go to your ${aspire.home}/bin folder and edit the aspire.sh file. In this case, we are setting Aspire to use 32 GB of memory.

    Code Block
    languagepowershell
    themeConfluence
    firstline8
    linenumberstrue
    # Set the java options
    JAVA_OPT="$JAVA_OPT -Xmx32g -Xms32g -XX:MaxPermSize=256m"


  2. Restart Aspire

    Code Block
    themeFadeToGrey
    $ bin\shutdown.sh

    and then

    Code Block
    themeFadeToGrey
    $ bin\aspire.sh

    themeConfluence
    firstline5
    linenumberstrue
    rem set the Java options for Aspire
    set ASPIRE_JAVA_OPTS=-Xmx32g -Xms32g -XX:MaxPermSize=256m


  2. Restart Aspire

    Code Block
    themeFadeToGrey
    > bin\shutdown.bat

Running as Windows Service


When running Aspire as a Windows Service, there are two options.

Option 1

.

- Re-install the Service

Every command should be run using an Administrator Console, and relative to the ${aspire.home} directory.

  1. Change the ${aspire.home}\bin\installService.bat file to reflect the memory settings you want to use. In the example below we are setting the memory as 32 GB.

    Code Block
    languagepowershell
    themeConfluence
    firstline5
    linenumberstrue
    rem Initial Java heap size
    set JAVA_INITIAL_MEMORY=32768
    
    rem Maximum  Java heap size
    set JAVA_MAX_MEMORY=32768


  2. Stop the service from the Services window.



  3. Remove the service by executing.

    Code Block
    themeFadeToGrey
    > bin\removeService.bat
    Windows Service Name:  AspireService
    
    [SC] DeleteService SUCCESS
    Service AspireService deleted.
    
    > 
    
    


  4. Reinstall the service.

    Code Block
    themeFadeToGrey
    > bin\installService.bat
    "JAVA 8"
    Current System Architecture: AMD64
    Windows Service Name:  AspireService
    Aspire Home:  C:\Users\aaguilar\Distributions\aspire-3.2
    
    Java VM:  C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_73\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll
    Creating Service...
    
    
    Service AspireService created.
    
    > 


Option 2

.

- Change the JVM Options

This option is available if you can't or don't want to reinstall the Service.

  1. Open the Registry Editor (regedit).
  2. Browse to:

    Code Block
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SOFTWARE / WOW6432Node / Apache Software / Procrun 2.0 / AspireService / Parameters / Java


  3. Edit JvmMs and JvmMx to what you need.



  4. Restart the AspireService from the Services Window.
