    DEV_MDS schema growth


      Hi all,


      I have installed OBPM 11g suite ( in my laptop.

      My laptop has intel core i5 processor and 8 GB RAM. I have also installed oracle 10g XE express edition for my testing

      when I deploy an application and create few instances, the DEV_MDS database grows to 43/53% in just a day or 2 and even if I try to purge via enterprise manager, I dont see any space clean up.


      I get PermGen/out of memory error and unable to test even one full cycle. can anyone help? I have set my xmx to 2 GB in setsoadomainenv

      Kindly help

          For the domain's setSOADomainEnv.cmd file, try:


          set DEFAULT_MEM_ARGS=-Xms512m -Xmx1024m

          set PORT_MEM_ARGS=-Xms768m -Xmx3072m

            Hi Dan,


            this is the value I am using

            set DEFAULT_MEM_ARGS=-Xms768m -Xmx2048m

            set PORT_MEM_ARGS=-Xms768m -Xmx2560m


            what am worried is in my local I created only few instances (I have deployed and undeployed the process so many times as well), even then the DEV_MDS growth rate is large. how do we handle in a production environment where we have 8-10 applications with lots of transactions.
