Increasing the Memory of the eG Manager

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. In such a case, follow the steps discussed below on an eG manager on Windows:

  1. Login to the eG manager host.
  2. Edit the <EG_INSTALL_DIR>\lib\setEnv.bat file.
  3. Search for the following entries:

    @set XMX=
    @set XMS=

  4. The XMX and XMS specifications govern the heap memory allocations to the eG manager. If you want to increase it to say, 8 GB (i.e., 8192 MB), change these specifications as indicated below:

    @set XMX=8192
    @set XMS=8192

  5. Finally, save the file.
