JVM Options

Changing Java Virtual Machine Options (Standalone Analytics Agent Only)


You do not need to modify JVM options if you bundle the Analytics Agent with the Machine Agent.

If you need to change any JVM start-up options, use a text editor to modify <analytics-agent-home>\conf\analytics-agent.vmoptions. Note that the vmoptions file name is read from the properties file: ad.jvm.options.name=analytics-agent.vmoptions. So, if you change the vmoptions file name then you need to change this property as well.
