Increasing the Java Heap size for ALM Server

  • Increasing the Java Heap size for ALM Server
Question ID: 107760

We were facing some performance issues with HP ALM, and we ran HP ALM Advisory tool which has recommended to increase our Java memory size to 4270 MB.

When I have checked the existing Initial and End Java memory it is as follows:

# Initial Java Heap Size (in MB)
wrapper.java.initmemory=almHeapSizeInitial

# Maximum Java Heap Size (in MB)
wrapper.java.maxmemory=almHeapSizeMax

Question: What does this mean?

The reason that you are seeing...

# Initial Java Heap Size (in MB)
wrapper.java.initmemory=almHeapSizeInitial

# Maximum Java Heap Size (in MB)
wrapper.java.maxmemory=almHeapSizeMax

instead of seeing...

# Initial Java Heap Size (in MB)
wrapper.java.initmemory=4096

# Maximum Java Heap Size (in MB)
wrapper.java.maxmemory=4096

There are two wrapper.conf files on the server one is located in C:ProgramDataHPALMWrapper and the other is located in C:Program FilesHPALMWrapper

You are going to C:Program FilesHPALMWrapperwrapper.conf

The file that you should be looking at is in C:ProgramDataHPALMWrapperwrapper.conf (ProgramData is a hidden directory). This file will have the actual values listed and is also the file that you will have to edit.
