How do I increase the heap size for Eclipse/Sigasi?

We recommend to increase the default heap size settings of Eclipse. You can do this by adding following lines to eclipse.ini in your Eclipse installation folder (In the standalone Sigasi version, this is the sigasi.ini file):

-vmargs
-Xmx1400m

This sets the maximum heap size to 1400 MB. If you system has plenty of memory, you can even choose higher numbers.

Note: If your eclipse.ini already contains these arguments, you should not append these parameters again, but instead modify the existing values. If -vmargs is there already, but -Xmx1400m is not; you should add -Xmx1400m after the existing -vmargs.
