+A workaround is passing your client-side JVM a reasonable value for <code>-XX:MaxDirectMemorySize</code>.
 By default,
+the <varname>MaxDirectMemorySize</varname> is equal to your <code>-Xmx</code>
max heapsize setting (if <code>-Xmx</code> is set).
+Try seting it to something smaller (for example, one user had success setting it to <code>1g</code>
+they had a client-side heap of <code>12g</code>).  If you set it too small, it
will bring on <code>FullGCs</code> so keep
+it  a bit hefty.  You want to make this setting client-side only especially if you are running
the new experiemental
+server-side off-heap cache since this feature depends on being able to use big direct buffers
(You may have to keep
+separate client-side and server-side config dirs).
