Action Plan

The maximum amount of RAM allocated to the Java heap space is defined in file %PROGRAMDATA%\CAST\CAST\Extensions\com.castsoftware.securityforjava.1.0.0-funcrel\main.py at line 124 : it is by default 2048M

commandLine = [
 os.path.join(self.flat_path, "jre", "bin","java"),
 "-Xmx2048M",
 "-jar",
 self.jarPath,
 "-c",
 os.path.join(self.largeStoragePath, "project.xml"),
 "-d",
 self.largeStoragePath
 ]

The action plan consists of tuning the -Xmx argument and the available RAM until the JVM does not run out of memory

  1. Increase the amount of RAM on the machine or VM, and relaunch analysis If this does not solve the problem, proceed to next step
  2. Edit file main.py and increase the -Xmx argument according to the amount of RAM you added during previous step.
  3. Relaunch analysis.
  4. If this does not solve the problem, contact  CAST Technical Support with following Relevant Input.
