Java heap size recommendation

If you are loading all countries, set the maximum Java heap size for GlobalGeocode to -Xmx10500m for basic usage, -Xmx16g for normal usage, and -Xmx32g to -Xmx64g for high performance usage.

To set this, use one of the following options:

  • Use the Min memory and Max memory fields on the database configuration page
  • As part of a database import via the Administration Utility (CLI tool)
  • Run a separate command from the Administration Utility
    ggmglobalgeocodedb memory set --name database_name --mn minimum_memory_size
    --mx maximum_memory_size
