"rapidminer process in java, memory problem"
I have what seems to be a peculiar problem.
My test machine is running linux (centOS) and has 8Gb ram (I have also witnessed this on a windows 2003 server 64bit).
I am trying to get rapidminer to consistantly use all the ram I allow it to use (for this discussion, it has all 8Gb).
This seems to be specific to training a model.
When I run the rapidminer process directly i.e. pass an xml file to the scripts/rapidminer file then the process eventually uses almost all 8Gb.
I also have a java app that communicates with rapidminer through the api, when I try to do the same training through this java app the process never uses more than half (just over, about 58%) of the available memory and the training can take almost twice as long.
I'm wondering if there is some config parameter that has to be set in the java app to tell rapidminer it can use all the available memory, but i can't find any reference to it.
