Java in FreeBSD : using too much memory ?
I installed Java 1.4.0_03 on a Pentium II 350 Mhz, 32 mb of RAM with FreeBSD 4.7 and I use java application from Interactive brokers. I was surprised to see this application take a very long time to load (5 mn against 20 sec on a linux box) and "top" shows that this application take 216 mb of RAM whereas it only takes 40 mb of RAM in RH 8.0.
With 32 mb of ram, the pc keeps swapping all the time, making the program virtually unusable.
Has anybody experienced a big memory footprint of java in FreeBSD ? Did I install Java wrongly ?
