How To Limit The Amount Of Memory Used For Caching By The OAAM Server (Doc ID 1454552.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 21, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Adaptive Access Manager - Version 10.1.4.5 to 11.1.1.5.0 [Release 10g to 11gR1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

This article describes the properties that can be set for Oracle Adaptive Access Manager to limit the size of some of the default caches used. This can be necessary when the host system has limited memory, for example when running on a 32bit system, that does not allow the JVM to use ignificant amounts of memory.

The memory usage profile of the server may look extremely like a memory leak and in fact if the maximum JVM heap size is too small the memory usage profile will look exactly like a memory leak. In fact it will just be the caches being progressively loaded with new values.
