Question:

In API Gateway software,

The following is described in the document.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Java VM Memory Allocation: Enter the amount of memory to allocate to the Java Virtual Machine or press [Enter] to keep the existing setting. You must allocate at least 256MB RAM.

-------------------------------------------------------------

However, it seems that value(256MB) is small.

 

What is the value which it is suitable for?

Answer:

Generally  we can't refer to it because it depends on an environment or working.

However, Half of computer's RAM are assigned to Java VM  in alliance edition by default.

It may become a standard.

Also, Requirements memory is 4GB(8 GB or above recommended) in software edition.

So, the allotment (Java VM ) 2 GB or above recommended.
