After EASA is installed, the EASA web pages are tested, and the license is installed, a few other tasks may remain. An Administrator may want to:
The EASA Server service is installed automatically on Windows.
Linux must be manually configured, see Running EASA as a Service.
By default, EASA will run as root on a Linux computer. The steps below will configure EASA to run as a different user:
The Linux EASA Server is now configured to run as a user easauser.
EASA's default memory allocation is correct for most cases. However if EASA Technical Services advises increasing the amount of memory available to Java, please follow the steps below:
The EASA Server is configured to allocate 1100MB (1.1GB) of memory for Java. The procedure for raising or lowering the maximum heap size depends on whether the EASA Server runs under Windows or Linux and whether its runs as an application or as a service.
The memory setting should be at least 500 MB to maintain an acceptable level of performance from an EASA Server.
The EASA Server's current memory setting is found at:
If EASA is run as an application, the environment variable JAVA_OPTS will be:
To change the EASA Server's allocation to 750 MB modify the environment variable below:
If EASA runs as a Windows service, configure the maximum memory setting before installing the EASA service in:
Edit the service.bat file in a text editor, such as Notepad, and search for and then modify the default maximum memory setting of:
For example to allocate 750 MB for EASA, change the above line to:
Additionally, raise the maximum heap size available to Windows services by running regedit, by modifying the third number in the SharedSection entry:
For example change:
If EASA has already been set to run as a service, then the existing service must be removed and then installed again after changing the memory settings. See the Removing the EASA Service page for details on removing the service.
To change the EASA maximum memory setting on a Linux computer, edit the line containing JAVA_OPTS in:
Change the default -Xmx1100m value to the desired maximum memory setting. For example to allocate 750 MB for EASA, set the value to -Xmx750m.
