Increasing Memory when Using Spring Insight

When you use Spring Insight to view the performance of your application, you might need to increase the memory of the tc Runtime instance to more than what your application requires on its own. In particular, you might need to increase the max heap. With the the Sun JVM, you may need to increase the size of the Permanent Generation using the -XX-MaxPermSize JVM option.

To increase the memory used by tc Runtime, edit the CATALINA_BASE/bin/setenv.sh|bat file, where CATALINA_BASE refers to the root directory of your instance, such as /home/tcserver/vfabric-tc-server-developer-2.5.X.X/insight-instance. The comments in the file itself show examples of setting the JVM options.
