Limiting machine agent memory utilization

Hi Team,

 

Could someone help me with limiting the memory utilized by AppDynamics machine agent to 100MB. I tried starting the machine agent with Xms and Xmx parameter like below, but that did not help in limiting the memory used by machine agent.

nohup java -jar /appdynamics/machine-agent/machineagent.jar -Xmx100m -Xms64m &

 

Thanks,

Santosh

Re: Limiting machine agent memory utilization

Hello,

 

I found some documentation.

 That states this:

The lightweight Standalone Machine Agent consumes minimal resources of your computer.

AppDynamics recommends the following additional Heap and PermGen space to accommodate the agent:

  • Maximum heap size (-Xmx): 100 MB
  • Maximum PermGen heap size (-XX:MaxPermSize): 20 MB

Looks similar to what you tried, but perhaps it may help.


Thanks,
Ryan, AppDynamics Community Manager
