    Question about Xms and Xms settings.

      I just inheriated a system with java options set to the following settings:

      -Xms1024, -Xmx1024

      I am trying to understand the benefit of having both options set to 1024.

          What the result will be is that the JVM will try to claim a block of memory of 1GB in size to use as its heap space.

          I am not sure anymore on if it is actually a good idea performance-wise to do this or that you should make the -Xms value smaller; it changes per garbage collector implementation.
