||Reminder: Increase the maximum available memory on your Lotus Notes client JVM today!
Yup, that’s right. Public Service Announcement time.
If you haven’t increased the maximum memory available to your Lotus Notes JVM yet, what are you waiting for?
By default, the Notes JVM only has 256mb of memory available to it. On a system with 4GB+ of memory, you should be easily able to increase it to 1/4 to 1/3 of the system memory and improve the end user performance.
- Shut down Lotus Notes.
Type C:notesnsd.exe -kill
2.) Find the file “jvm.properties” in this folder (depending on Lotus Notes version):
In Lotus Notes version 8.5.x:
3.) Open the jvm.properties files in a texteditor like notepad.
4.) You will now see a text surrounded by a lot of pound signs ####
The first ‘property’ after the last # sign is:
This is where you must change 256 MB RAM to 768 RAM (if you have 2GB RAM installed which is IBM standard)
5.) Save your changes and close the file.
- In order to make sure that all processes are stopped, run this command:
- Start -> Run
Now start Lotus Notes and hopefully you will find it a lot faster already at password prompt and afterwards for opening workspace, mailbox etc.
