Initial parameters eclipse July 31, 2007

Posted by maxmil in : eclipse,Java , trackback

After continued problems with permGenSpace errors in eclipse i’ve found a configuration that works, initialize eclipse with the following parameters
-vmargs -Xms512m -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -XX:PermSize=128m
The last two are the important ones (i could probably reduce them but i have 2Gb of RAM so i’m not too bothered).

This is what each parameter does:

ms: initial memory of the application
mx: maximum memory of the application
PermSize: additional memory used by the VM (by default configured to 32Mb)
MaxPermSize: maximum permanent memory
