Subject Re: Memory configuration change from 80%(Ignite 2.1) to 20%(Ignite 2.3)??
Date Thu, 14 Dec 2017 12:33:52 GMT
The reason to reduce default amount of memory allocated for Ignite from 80%
to 20% was numerous complaints about severe performance degradation. The
investigations showed that was due to remaining 20% of RAM often was not
enough for the operating system and other typical enterprise utilities to
operate efficiently thus killing the server performance. 20% was considered
a safe default amount and you can always configure amount of available
for your specific setup.

The memory configuration
is applicable only for off-heap memory. If you enabled on-heap caching, it
is strongly recommended to configure an eviction policy
to limit the on-heap memory usage. Otherwise you can go out of memory.
