atlas-debug unusable slow performance

When developing an addon I currently encounter the problem, that running atlas-debug to start a local Confluence 6.10.0 is unuable slow. Loading a page sometime takes more than 30s. How can I debug this performance problem? And how can I give more memory resources to the atlas-debug instance (I think the 1GB may one of the problems).

Hi Dirk,

From this article it looks like you can pass the min and max memory parameters to your instance with the --jvmargs flag: atlas-debug.

For example, the following would set it to 4GB: 

-Xms4096m -Xmx4096m

 Since you are developing an add-on I wanted to share this link, too: Helpful resources for developers building Atlassian apps



Ok, thanks, seems to work. No performance beast but must better than before :-)

This question was already answered but I want to share what helped in my case. I reduced number of active breakpoints (IntelliJ IDEA) and it made a huge difference.

The syntax for the command with flags was painful enough for me to figure out that I thought I'd post it here so folks can copy/paste:


atlas-debug --maven-plugin-version 8.2.0 --jvmargs "-Xms4096m -Xmx4096m"
