Looks like there's not enough available memory on the build server for Maven to allocate 2GB for it's JVM. 

Here's a few options:

  • Increase the amount of memory available on the build server
  • Reduce the memory footprint of other processes on the system so there's more overhead
  • Reduce the amount of memory allocated to Maven via the MAVEN_OPTS environment variable. e.g.
    • MAVEN_OPTS="-Xms256m -Xmx1024m"
      • Xms = Initial memory allocation
      • Xmx = Maximum memory allocation
