Support for large heaps not present in Ladybird solaris i386 client & server

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • Resolved In Build:
      beta
    • CPU:
      x86, sparc
    • OS:
      solaris_2.6, solaris_8

      Backports

        Description

        For client mode user will get the following error at execution time:
        Invalid maximum heap size: -Xmx3g
        Could not create the Java virtual machine.

        for server mode user will get the following error at execution time:
        Error occurred during initialization of VM
        Could not reserve enough space for object heap
        Dumping core....
        Abort

        the test machine in question has over 5gig of mem+swap. The above
        error message would seem like the server version allows for the args
        passed in: i.e. -Xmx3g but failed to allocate a heap of that size.

        The Error happens when running the latest ladybird_baseline build 06.

        Path to jdk: /net/sqesvr.eng/export/vsn/VM/ladybird/jdk1.3.1/b06/solsparc/bin/java
        Path to testcase:
           I've attached the testcase to this bug report.
            or goto: /net/dogboy.east/tests/JTG-WORK-DIR/src/misc/32bit/quicklook/memory/TestHeapWalk

        Steps to duplicate bug:
        type the following command and wait, The System that you are going to run on
        needs at least 4g of (mem + swap) combined. This test will run pretty slow
        on a system with a low mem and higher swap sizes.

        /net/sqesvr.eng/export/vsn/VM/ladybird/jdk1.3.1/b06/solsparc/bin/java (-client -server) -Xmx3g TestHeapWalk

        SPECIAL NOTE: Does the documentation note the limitation of support in win98/NT and some win2000 release? What about linux, should this workas well? If a customer uses -Xmx3g on win98, do we tell them that
        large heap support is not valid for this OS.
