Subject RE: Help running AggregatePlaintextProcessor
Date Sun, 22 Dec 2013 23:26:21 GMT

 ULMS also uses a lot of memory  especially since it contains the full vocabulary for annotating
in terms of recognizing diseases, anatomy, meds, etc.   Though, to get the plaintext processor
(without ULMS) still requires a lot of memory because of all the components it calls just
like the aggregate processor using ULMS.  
I'm using Eclipse but do try what the other folks recommended but if for whatever reason nothing
works use this as a last resort.  Gamers do this to increase their memory for JRE.   Create
an environmental variable(1st line below)   with value(2nd line below) :  

-Xms500m -Xmx4000m

Hi Paula,
Thank you SO much for your response. I have been literally trying to fix this for 5+ hours.
I don't have permissions to use the ULMS version yet so I am trying to make this work. Unfortunately
I am not using eclipse so his method for increasing does not make sense. Can you expand? Were
you in eclipse? Previously, i googled how to increase Heapsize, and changed settings in my
java application. If I go to configure Java Control Panel I added the following runtime parameter:

-Xmx2048m for both user and system... to no avail.

I sincerely appreciate your help. Are you telling me that when I get the ULMS version it won't
use as much memory?

Hi Josh,
Yes, I had the same problem but my friend Samir helped me  out. :-)  You have to increase
your JRE memory.  Please see my post and Samir's from October, I think it was early October.

Actually the ULMS version of the AggregatePlaintextProcessor  is more important.

Hello everyone,

I am trying to use cTAKES (just downloaded it) and when trying to load the analysis engine
AE  AggregatePlaintextProcessor (per this link: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CTAKES/cTAKES+3.1+User+Install+Guide#cTAKES3.1UserInstallGuide-Prerequisites)

I get this error:Loading model:................................scope model: /C:/apache-ctakes-3.1.0/resources/org/apache/ctakes/assertion/models/scope.modelException
in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: GC overhead limit exceeded

I am on Windows 8, 8gb of ram. It appears that other AE work.. but I know AggregatePlaintextProcessor
is the most important one.
Thank you so much for any help!  This is very important to me. Please feel free to respond
to me directly at my email address: joshuaweiner2@gmail.com
