Changing memory allocation limits

The amount of memory allocated for jLog can be increased by editing the Maximum (-Xmx) and Minimum (-<Xms) memory allocation values as follows:

Ctrl-click on jLog in the Applications folder (or wherever you have placed it) and select 'Show Package Contents'. A new Finder window opens. Double-click 'Contents'.

1) If you have the Property List Editor available, you can double-click the 'Info.plist' file. Open 'Root' and then 'Java'. Double-click on the value for the 'VMOptions' entry to open an array of values. Set the maximum (-Xmx) to e.g. 128 Mbytes as and optionally the minimum (-Xms) to e.g. 16 Mbytes as

-Xmx128M
-Xms16M.

2) If you do not have the Property List Editor installed, you can edit the file in a text editor (be careful). Locate <key>VMOptions</key> and change the values as follows:

<key>VMOptions</key>
<array>
   <string>Xmx128M</string>
   <string>Xms16M</string>
</array>

Save the changes.

 

Changing the Java VM

The Java VM can be selected as follows:

Ctrl-click on jLog in the Applications folder (or wherever you have placed it) and select 'Show Package Contents'. A new Finder window opens. Double-click 'Contents'.

1) If you have the Property List Editor available, you can double-click the 'Info.plist' file. Open 'Root' and then 'Java'. Double-click on the value for the 'JVMVersion' entry and set e.g. 1.5*

2) If you do not have the Property List Editor installed, you can edit the file in a text editor (be careful). Locate <key>JVMVersion</key> and change the values as follows:

<key>JVMVersion</key>
<string>1.5*</string>

Note that the syntax is as follows
1.3* selects the newest available of 1.3, 1.3.1
1.4* selects the newest available of 1.4, 1.4.1, 1.4.2
1.3+ selects the newest available (e.g. of 1.3, 1.3.1, 1.4, 1.4.1, 1.5.0, 1.5.1, etc)
1.5+ selects the newest available of 1.5, 1.5.1, etc.

Save the changes and restart jLog.
