Increasing the Memory Settings of an eG Agent on Linux

To increase the memory settings of the eG agent on Linux, do the following:

  1. Stop the eG agent.
  2. Edit the start_agent file in the /opt/egurkha/bin directory.
  3. In the file, search for the -Xrs entry.
  4. Next to -Xrs, insert an entry of the following format: -Xmx<memory>m. For instance, to increase the eG agent’s RAM size to 256 MB, the entry to be inserted should be: -Xmx256m (see Figure 1).
