(ARCHIVED) airControl - How to Increase JVM Memory Allocation

This article has been archived.

This article is current to the last version of airControl, but will not be updated further since airControl has been retired.

The airControl software runs on a Java Virtual Machine (JVM), which can be installed on any operating system that supports Java 8 or newer. The airControl service requires at least 2GB of allocated memory size to run installations for networks of up to 500 devices and might require a larger memory depending on device count. However, the default allocated memory size is 2GB.

To change memory allocation:

1. Open the <airControl directory>/airControl2Server.vmoptions file in a text editor of your choice.

2. change the -Xmx2048m option to a suitable amount. For example to -Xmx4096m for 4GB of allocated memory.

3. Save the file and restart airControl.

Find more information about airControl configuration in the airControl User Guide.
