Thread: Memory problem with Spoon / Kitchen (already increased heap size)

  1. #1

    Default Memory problem with Spoon / Kitchen (already increased heap size)

    I've already increased the Java Heap size with

    PENTAHO_DI_JAVA_OPTIONS="-Xmx2048m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m".
    but I'm still running out of memory. This is occurring with a table with several millions of rows, but each row only has 5 columns and they're very small (date, int, etc.)

    I'm getting this on a very simple extract script. Table Input->Table Output

    I tried dropping down the commit size to 100 rows, but that doesn't seem to help. The memory used goes up past 2Gb, and then Spoon hangs (on my Win 7 64 bit OS).

    Is there any thing I can do in the script to keep the number of rows in memory down? Any reason why this table should use so much memory?

    Try to decrease the logging size. See:

    Thanks. I'll try that. It says this is for Spoon. Does it work for Kitchen too?
