    java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space starting plain vanilla EAP 5.1

    Martin Kultermann Newbie

      Hi everyone, I just downloaded and installed the standard plain vanilla EAP 5.1 on a 64 bit Win 2008 R2 server with 12 Gig of ram.

       

      I set it up to run as a service and keep running into this exception either during the start-up process or after a few minutes in the Admin Console usually when I try to configure data sources.

       

      I tried tweaking the Java Options as follows:

       

      1. changed Heap and Perm Size: -Xms4096m -Xmx4096m -XX:MaxPermSize=2048m

       

      2. added: -XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled -XX:+CMSPermGenSweepingEnabled

       

      It just keeps running out of memory after a very very short time.

       

      Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

       

      TIA
