Last updated on MARCH 29, 2022

Applies to:

Hyperion Essbase Administration Services - Version and later
Oracle Exalytics Software - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using EPM/Essbase version, as a managed WLS server with JDK160_29 on Exalytics. Recently increased java heap size in the file in the EPM home as shown below:

With this change, the java heap is expected to be 16GB, yet the WLS console and Linux operating system show a lower than expected value (512 MB). Tested using the script in "/u01/app/oracle/product/EPM/Middleware/user_projects/epmsystem1/bin" to start all the services and also tried using WLS Console -> Server -> Managed server -> start. In all cases, the server starts successfully but the memory displayed in the WLS console and operating system is lower than what was set via the entries in the file.

Why is the memory change not taking effect as expected?
