I work on my Ubuntu desktop machine and I'd like to increase my heap size of Java. The RAM is 16GB and this current Max Heap Size is 3GB
So I tried this command:
java -Xmx10000m -X2000m -XshowSettings:all
and the result is:
Min Heap Size: 1.95G
Max Heap Size: 9.77G
then sudo gedit /etc/tomcat7/default
and changed the line to:
JAVA_OPTS="-Djava.awt.headless=true -Xmx10000m -XX:MaxPermSize=2000m"
but when I restarted my machine and checked my max size using:
and it shows:
Max Heap Size (Estimated): 3.80GB
I wanted to take advantage of the high RAM I got (16 GB). Is there anything else I can do?
