Launching Eclipse with More Memory (Increasing Heap Size)

Writing by on Wednesday, 15 of October , 2008 at 11:36 am

I was trying to increase eclipse heap size and setting it to 1024MB and that wouldn’t work. Reducing it to 768MB did the trick for me.

C:\eclipse\eclipse.exe -vmargs -Xmx768M

Later, after installing Your Kit Profiler and trying to add a plug in for eclipse, I started seeing the same error. So I opened up the eclipse.ini and removed the –launcher.XXMaxPermSize 256m option.
