How to set or optmize the memory?

Since I upedated Jira to 5.2 version, our server is using high amount of memory.

The tomcat 7.0 sometimes use 750mb of memory, and our server only has 2gb.

I also try to change directly for tomcat7w.exe, but did not succeed, in this 2 cases I've tried to limit 512 of memory.

I have the Confluence running in my server as well, and a few other applications (jira as service).
I could buy more memory for my cloud server,
but each one is going to cost 100$ for 1GB.

Does the jira is going to use always the maximum of memory available?

What should I do for the stops to use always the maximum of memory available?

Following below the setenv.bat

rem --------------------------------------------------------------------------

rem Note: If running JIRA as a Service, settings in this file have no

rem effect. See http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Increasing+JIRA+memory</span<>>

rem

rem --------------------------------------------------------------------------

rem One way to set the JIRA HOME path is here via this variable. Simply uncomment it and set a valid path like c:\jira\home. You can of course set it outside in the command terminal. That will also work.

rem

rem JIRA_HOME=""

rem --------------------------------------------------------------------------




rem ------------------...















echo If you encounter issues starting or stopping JIRA, please see the Troubleshooting guide at http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Installation+Troubleshooting+Guide</span<>>

echo.

IF "x%JIRA_HOME%x" == "xx" GOTO NOJIRAHOME2

echo Using JIRA_HOME: %JIRA_HOME%

:NOJIRAHOME2

Are you running Jira as a service?

Is anything else running on the machine?

On a based-on-experience rough idea, I wouldn't even bother running a production Jira installation on less than 1Gb of memory, and even that's the minimum for a small install (up to 25 users). Rather than trying to squeeze your services, you might find it quicker/cheaper/easier to get more memory for the box.

I have confluence running as well in the same server, and few other applications (Jira running as service). I could buy more memory for my cloud server, but it's going to cost me 100$ each one. I only have 6 users. Do you think if I get 2GB plus the Jira server will use all these 2GB? Or it might get stable at 1gb?
