Howto set JAVA_OPTS for Crucible/Fisheye


I have some issues with our crucible installation (it crashes sometime), and have dialed it down to be because of too little Java Heap Space - but it seems to be a bit of a issue to set.

If i put my new higher -Xmx1536m into $FISHEYE_HOME/ in the "FISHEYE_OPTS" part it looks like this in processlist:

/usr/local/java/bin/java -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxNewSize=128m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Xmx1536m -Dfisheye.library.path= -Dfisheye.inst=/usr/local/crucible -Djava.awt.headless=true -Djava.endorsed.dirs=/usr/local/crucible/lib/endorsed -jar /usr/local/crucible/fisheyeboot.jar start

So it still starts with the one mentioned first.

I cant figure out where the -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxNewSize=128m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m is coming from, it is not mentioned in the .sh files

The only place i have grepped out is inside the fisheyeboot.jar - but do i really have to unpack, edit and repack a JAR file to change this?

Thank you

Simple option is to override -XX:MaxNewSize=128m to a value of your choice in the FISHEYE_OPTS, the call $FISHEYE_HOME/fisheyeboot.jar com.cenqua.fisheye.boot.OptsSetter will ignore if the option is already set..

edit in line FISHEYE_OPTS add your desired Xms or Xmx, for example FISHEYE_OPTS=`$JAVACMD -cp $FISHEYE_HOME/fisheyeboot.jar com.cenqua.fisheye.boot.OptsSetter -Xms2048m -Xmx2048m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m`

Do you have to restart the software for this to take effect?

Yes, FishEye/Crucible restart is required as those settings are read on the JVM startup.



I have added FISHEYE_OPTS argument's in .bashrc file and it worked.


export FISHEYE_OPTS='-Xms6048m -Xmx6048m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m'

Thanks that worked for me also! on version 4.3  Also the MaxPerm option was removed in openjdk ver 8



The variables i've tried to change is the ones mentioned in those articles, so it's not helping me further :/
