JVM Memory Usage

Posted by aiqa on April 28, 2005 at 10:29 PM PDT

When JVM spends %98 of it`s time to garbage collections and can not free more then %2 of the memory then an "Out of Memory" exception is thrown. Heap size (the memory space where the progam lives) is calculated according to physical memory. The initial heap size will be set to phys_mem / DefaultInitialRAMFraction. DefaultInitialRAMFraction is a command line option with a default value of 64.

Open Source Software... A dream that comes true. The only way to create something really valuable under no company pressure. The only way to code it as a hobby while communicating with the programmers from all over the world. One of the best way to improve computing skills. An ideal way to meet with the masters. A long way to walk... What about the human intelligence?

One unified user interface for all your linux based firewall management needs which can be accessed via a browser or used as an application.
