I'm getting out of memory often when using OE PDS for ve

Posted by jquerijero on 19-Sep-2016 10:30

I don't recall seeing this much out of memory error in 11.4 and 11.5. 11.6 seems to be hitting the memory limit more often. Does anyone know what could be causing this?

32 or 64 bit PDSOE?

32 bit

OpenEdge Release: 11.6.2

For starters I would recommend this link:
Worked great for me.  I didn’t do all of the optimizations but the ones I did helped a lot.
Next I would look at the values in your eclipse.ini file related to memory.
I don’t recall anything specific to 11.6.2 that would cause OOM errors.

In 11.6 PDS OE increased memory settings for 32 and 64 bit versions. Some customers running 32 bit version of PDS OE seems to have problems with this setting. Please decrease -Xmx value in eclipse.ini file (default is 1024m, set to 512m) and restart PDS OE. You can find eclipse.ini file under C:\Progress\OpenEdge\oeide\eclipse folder.

Hope this helps,
