Release Automation KB: How to Increase Agent's Java Heap Size 

08-21-2015 03:58 PM

Problem

Certain actions may result in an "out of memory" on the Release Automation agent once executed.

 

Example: When executing an action that downloads a large file from a URL, an "out of memory" error will be encountered.

 

Cause

The agent's java heap size is too small.

 

Resolution

Increase the agent's heap size via the following steps:

 

  1. Stop the "Nolio Agent" service.
  2. Create a new file named "custom.wrapper.conf" under the "<RA installation>\NolioAgent\conf" directory.
  3. Add the following lines:

    # Initial Java Heap Size (in MB)
    wrapper.java.initmemory=512

    # Maximum Java Heap Size (in MB)
    wrapper.java.maxmemory=1024
  4. Save the file <RA installation>\NolioAgent\conf\custom.wrapper.conf.
  5. Start the "Nolio Agent" service.

 

Note: The default heap size (if not specified in the custom.wrapper.conf file) is 256mb.

Hi Michael,

 

I greatly apologize for the delay in response -- It took a while to pin this down since, but after bugging a lot of folks internally, I was able to verify the default size is 256mb.  I'll update the KB with this information.

James,

 

do you have an update on this? what is the default Java Heap Size of an agent?

 

Thanks,
Michael

Hi,

 

I found these entries in the wrapper.conf:

# Initial Java Heap Size (in MB)

#wrapper.java.initmemory=3

 

 

# Maximum Java Heap Size (in MB)

#wrapper.java.maxmemory=64

 

Thanks,

Michael

I don't recall offhand, will have to look into that. Where did you see the comment?

Does anyone know the default max heap size of the agent? I saw in the comment a value of 64MB. Is this true?

Thanks!

Michael
