Set the proxy server initial and upper bound memory limits

The proxy server must have a minimum of 4 GB of RAM available (6 GB recommended). The initial and upper bound memory limits determine how much memory the proxy server can consume. Set these limits to avoid performance issues in your Edge Encryption implementation.

Before you begin

If your Edge Encryption proxy server is running, you must stop and restart your Edge Encryption proxy server after updating these properties.

Procedure

  1. In your proxy server directory, open <install dir>/conf/wrapper.conf.
  2. Set the proxy server's initial memory limit.
    1. Locate the line: #wrapper.java.initmemory=3.
    2. Replace it with: wrapper.java.initmemory=6144.
  3. Optionally set the upper bound memory limit.
    Because an upper bound memory limit is not set in the base system, the proxy server may utilize all available memory. If other services are running on the server, you may want to set the upper bound memory limit.
    1. Locate the line: wrapper.java.maxmemory=<max_memory_specified_in_MB>.
    2. Set the max memory to the desired number.
  4. Save and close the file.

What to do next

Start the Edge Encryption proxy.
