Increasing the Memory of the eG Manager Process

The eG manager runs as a Java process. Typically, 1/3rdof the total system memory is the maximum heap memory that can be allocated to the eG manager process.

Where a large number of components are to be monitored, you may want to allocate more memory heap to the eG manager process. On a Unix manager, follow the steps below to modify the heap memory allocation:

  1. Login to the eG manager host. Edit the catalina.sh file in the /opt/egurkha/manager/tomcat/bin directory.
  2. Search for the entry JvmMx in the file. You will then find an entry that reads as follows:

    JvmMx <Heap_memory_allocation_to_manager> –JvmMs <Heap_memory_allocation_to_manager>

  3. The JvmMx and JvmMs specifications govern the heap memory allocations to the eG manager. If you want to increase it to say, 2 GB, change these specifications as indicated below:

    JvmMx 2048 –JvmMs 2048

  4. Finally, save the file.

While overriding the default heap memory allocations to the eG manager process, ensure that the allocated heap memory is not greater than the total memory capacity of the eG manager host.
