Increasing Heap Size


Hi ,
I am runnig a CAD application on 32 bit Linux (RHEL) which requires large heap space. My system does have a 12GB of RAM, but application crashes saying that Maximum heap space 2.13Gb reached. How to increase the heap space allocated to this application/process. I tried same application on Solaris also buit got the same problem of Heap memory.

What version of the Kernel are you using? 2.4x allows 2GB max.
