Xmx, Xms and heap fragmentation

Posts: n/a

[ Repost from ]

I seem to remember of a post recently in a newsgroup (or was it on a web
site...), telling that there was a trend now to question the tuning of the
heap size with Xms=Xmx, as it would lead to memory fragmentation (preventing
heap shrinkage and leading to unexpected OutOfMemoryException's, IIRC).

Do you have information on this ?

Replying to myself

It's Paul Gover's reply to "WAS Out Of Memory, Heap Size" in the group.

It's the fourth article of the thread but Google didn't crawl it
