When attempting to run a large report using desformat=SPREADSHEET, the following error occurs:

REP-56048: Engine rwEng-0 crashed, job Id: <###>

or it just hangs.

jvmOptions and cacheSize have been increased in $OH/reports/conf/<repserver_name>.conf file, but the long running reports continue to fail.  Sample setting: 

        jvmOptions="-Xms512m -Xmx512m"

The same report runs fine if it retrieves less data.
