trying to start Sailfin on my 16 GB machines with a heap more then 6 GB. But so
far I can not do it. Each time for the number of the instances the MQ broker
doesn't start with a message: "not enough space". I've tried 12, 11, 10, 9, 8,
7 GB heaps.
When a process is forked on Solaris the child process requires the same memory
as that of parent. And JDK uses fork and exec to spawn a process (runtime.exec
is called)..
This looks like a JDK (on Solaris ) bug

As a workaround we should configure the instances to connect to the DAS broker
(REMOTE mode)

Since this happens on
a SPARC machine alone
b. There is a JDK issue filed and will be fixed in JDK 7
c. and also that there is workaround, this can be made a P4.
