    UPDATE: Installing new java from Open J9 helped. Some reason Oracle's and Hot's were no good.


    Hey all,

    Been working on a couple of bots and getting the memory and CPU usage as low as possible. I have a couple of questions on what the launcher says vs what Windows says its using.

    When I open up the launcher and select "Maximum memory usage " and set it to 256MB


    But when I open up task manager Windows says its using more.



    I remember that I used 512MB limit before. Please help!

    Removed old Java and Changed the ENV variables to


    for Path and JAVA_HOME


    New Java version above

    Removed Client.jar and redownloaded via DBLauncher.jar

    Magic! Thanks!

    If you use a profiler (something like JProfiler or VisualVM) it may mess w/ it and cause DB to be unreadable via the profilers. (Btw profilers are better at detecting actual resoruce usage since it detects it at the JVM level :) )


    Edit: Just tested it w/ latest version of AdoptOpenJDK 1.8 OpenJ9 and can confirm that VisualVM and JProfiler do NOT work with OpenJ9. I even tried to specify where the JDK is located and still didn't get it to work. Just a heads up for the people who use either profiler to measure resource usage :).
