Re: [controller-dev] SP edition broken

Greg Hall <ghall@...>

I’m thinking that a controller in most cases is the primary application running on a host/VM … perhaps it should take 2/3 of Memory by default? 3/4 even...

Hi Devin, thanks for jumping here. Yes we need a fix for this asap, people normally download the editions to test this or that feature and it is very difficult to figure out you need an extra parameter -Xmx in order to run the edition. Please open a bug or I can do it if you are busy.

Hi Jan -

The memory had always been 1/4th of the OS if you didn’t specify it on the command line. We set the minimum memory to be 1 G if it is undefined (as well as print out a warning). Perhaps there is a need to set the defaults in these other editions to ensure enough memory – we could do that by perhaps customizing an environment script that the calls into. That would allow us to default the memory to the proper sizes on start up.

If we think this is a requirement we can open a bug to discuss the work in more detail. It would be nice to avoid these memory related questions if we can avoid it (and provide the best OOB experience).

Thank you,

Thanks Greg! I wanted to respond to the same effect  - I run the SP edition with 2 Gig with no issues. The SP Edition’s memory requirements are larger than the base edition. The heap configuration of the controller changed recently from 2 Gig to 1 Gig - other ] apps and/or editions that need more meory (ritualization?) may run into similar problems too.

OK, problem turned out to be (thanks Greg) lack of Java memory, so now we need to run SP edition with -Xmx1500m otherwise it does not work at LF (or my local env). Please let me know if I should open a bug for further investigation or this is normal/expected behavior.

More information: the problem has been detected by our system test around 9:00AM (UTC).

Here is the link to download SP edition for quick verification:

Also the SP edition system test has been disabled until this gets fixed.

Hi again,

Can anyone take a look at SP edition? it is totally broken, the controller just dies after a few minutes after start.
