I'm currently developing a tool allowing me to get statistics from anyware simply by going on a website I also created.
For those who don't know, Birt is a reporting tool, and an eclipse plugin.
My problem is the following :
I installed tomcat on the server hosting my website, and installed the Birt ReportEngine on it, and on my website, I call the online viewer to get my reports.
The problem is that since yesterday, when I launch a report, I have this error :
javax.servlet.ServletException: L'exécution de la servlet a lancé une exception
java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space
As said by Thomas, the parameter to set is
-XX:MaxPermSize. One way of setting this parameter for Tomcat is to use the
CATALINA_OPTS environment variable.
For Windows :
set CATALINA_OPTS=-Xms512m -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m
For Linux (bash) :
export CATALINA_OPTS="-Xms512m -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m"
catalina.sh files in your tomcat/bin directory and add the above commands there.
(The Xmx and Xms parameters set the minimum and maximum size for the Java heap - where objects are stored. This is not the problem you have but I included them for the sake of completeness.)
