Subject "PermSize is a scam" comment in jmeter startup command
Date Mon, 09 Jan 2012 10:29:37 GMT
The startup script has the following line in it:

# PermSize is a scam. Leave it like this:
#PERM="-XX:PermSize=64m -XX:MaxPermSize=64m"

Is there any particular reason for this? (The explanatory link at the beginning of the script
is broken) My tests are running out of perm gen and I want to try increasing this as a preliminary
fix. The tests are using custom samplers written in Java.
