Subject RE: Initial and max heap size

Well, I have a 16G machine and I do not want to give all memory to hbase since each hbase deamon
will take 4Gigs - master and regionserver are running  on the same machines and also hdfs

Make sure you are using a 64 bit JVM as opposed to 32-bit.. 32 bit java doesn't allow more
than 3-4 gigs..

Is there a way to specify an initial and max heap size to hbase ?
Giving 4G to HBASE_HEAPSIZE fails to start the JVM.
