JVM Settings

Best practice recommendation: Set both sizes to 66% of total RAM (see Appliance Memory and CPU in the Filr 3.4: Installation, Deployment, and Upgrade Guide).

Although Filr can begin with the minimum and adjust up to the maximum as needed, the adjustment process is resource intensive and degrades system performance.

IMPORTANT:Values must end with g or m and cannot contain fractional values. For example, to set the JVM min heap size to 1.5 GB, specify 1536m.

  • JVM Min Heap Size: Increase or decrease as needed.

    Default: 6g

  • JVM Max Heap Size: Increase or decrease as needed.

    Default: 6g

  • Java Home: Informational only; cannot be changed.

  • Allow generation of a system dump on a user signal: Causes generation of a system dump in addition to a heap dump and java core dump at the time a dump is triggered on a user signal.

    This can be useful when troubleshooting issues with your Filr system. However, a system dump takes more time and the files consume more disk space than a heap dump or java core dump.
