Remember that in these parameters, “G” refers to Gb of RAM, and “M” refers to Mb.

Keep in mind that 1G = 1024M

Although the optimal values will depend on your computer hardware, we recommend changing these values to 4Gb maximum and 1Gb minimum, as a general rule.

For computers with <6 GB of RAM:

-Xmx3G -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:+CMSIncrementalMode -XX:-UseAdaptiveSizePolicy -Xmn1024M

For computers with +8 GB of RAM:

-Xmx5G -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:+CMSIncrementalMode -XX:-UseAdaptiveSizePolicy -Xmn3G
