Subject [general] memory usage and default Xmx
Date Tue, 06 Feb 2007 14:29:57 GMT

When I tried running eclipse with harmony, I found out that the default 
Xmx value is set to 256M
Is there any specific reason why this is set so high? Because it may 
lead to impression of hdk
being a memory hogger. I have 512M RAM and my eclipse started taking up 
256M memory from
start. Which made me feel hdk was a memory hogger.

1. Can we not set it by default to some lower value (like sun sets it to 
64M), and when you need
it to be high, you can always override the default Xmx.

2. I also experienced that whatever Xmx I set, eclipse would start with 
heap size of Xmx. (utilising
the maximum alloted heap size)

3.  I specified -Xmx as 128M and the heap size showed 128M but process 
memory usage exceeded 280M.
