Dear forum.

I have recently discovered RapidMiner and I am fascinated by the range of possibilities this amazing tool has to offer.
Unfortunately, I am not very skillful when it comes to computers.
I have a big amount of text that I want to analyze, and so far I have been getting along with the great youtube tutorials around the web.

But right now I am stuck. I can see, that rapidminer only uses 3,5 GB RAM when it is analyzing my text, and I would like to increase that amount. My computer has 16 GB RAM. Does anyone in here know, how I raise the amount of memory assigned to RapidMiner?

I am using a Mac with OS X Mavericks.

Best,
Marc

    In Mac, in RapidMiner/lib folder use that: java -jar -Xmx9100m rapidminer.jar where 9100 is a number of Mb

    Dear agb46.

    Thank you for your kind reply.

    When I look in my lib folder, there is no file called java- jar -xmx9100m ??
    There is only a file called rapidminer.jar , but that only opens rapidminer.

    Im kinda noobish, so I hope you will help me.

    Best,
    Marc

    Yes, in this lib folder from console.

    cd "../Rapidminerfolde"
    cd lib
    java -jar -Xmx9100m rapidminer.jar
