External Purge Memory settings are inconsistent between Windows and Linux/Unix and changing the memory settings is complicated
It is very confusing that Xmx for Ext Purge on Windows defaults to 512m no matter what the Noapp is tuned for. However on linux/Unix the -Xmx for External Purge is pulled from whatever the Noapp is set for. This is very inconsistent and can cause issues on Linux/Unix with Native Out of Memory when customers increase the Noapp memory to a larger number since both the Noapp and External Purge are using the same Xmx values.
Here is a link which discusses how to modify the -Xmx for External Purge on Linux/Unix: https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/b2b-integrator/6.1.0?topic=ep-changing-xmx-other-memory-settings-external-purge-unix-linux
As you can see from these instructions it is very difficult to procedure to follow.
Ideally External Purge should have something more straight forward to changing the memory values. Would it be possible just to have the ability to add the memory parameters to the archivethread.properties_hpp_ext properties file or customer_overrides.properties?
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
External Purge memory settings should be consistent and easily modifiable.
