Subject RE: OutOfMemoryError on addIndexes()
Date Wed, 10 Aug 2005 10:37:53 GMT
I tried it first without any parameter, and now just for test i tried it with -Xmx1000M, but
still no luck. It gives the error almost instantly.

How much memory are you giving your programs?

 java    -Xmx<size>        set maximum Java heap size

situation, i create indexes on several computers on our network and they are copied to one
server. There, once a day, they are merged into one masterIndex, which is then searched. The
problem is in merging. I use the following code:

way, it happens on the command and only on indexes of approx 100M+ (The largest
index I have is only about 150MB) When I run it on windows machine with JDK1.5 I get the following:

and I got this error too. In my opinion 120MB index is not that big. The machine it runs on
is a Xeon 3,2GHz with 2GB of RAM, so it should be enough. Can you please help me?
