BusinessObjects BI 4.0 Installation and java memory consumption

Former Member

Hi all,

I'm working with an installation of BusinessObjects BI 4.0 on a machine Windows 2008 Server 64bit and in these last day I noticed a serious performance problem. Server is very slow, and I see from task manager the process java.exe that occupied a lot of resources. CPU usage grows till 95-99 and come back to 0 periodically. In the past weeks this problem didn't occur.

Did somebody have this problem in the past? what could be the cause?

Thanks for the support!

Hello Arjun,

are this properties also valid for Linux? What's about -Xmx1024m?

Thanks and best regards,

-XmX1024M that's what I set in my system.

Check this note which has the parameters

1346684 - "java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space" in Tomcat Web Application Server (doesn't say WIn or Linux)

This note for Linux - 1637342 - Tomcat hangs or crashes: Exception in thread "CompilerThread1" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError
