How can I increase performance for RTC client?

Sandra Bernspang (15158) | asked Oct 12 '12, 4:54 a.m.
This might be a rumour, but I've heard about a potential setting for the RTC client that will increase performance somehow. Does anybody know about this?

There are many RTC clients...
For the RTC Eclipse client, a popular setting is to edit the file at <install>/client/eclipse/eclipse.ini and bump the -Xmx value to -Xmx1024m . This is useful if you compile large projects and is more of an eclipse trick than RTC specific.

For the RTC Command Line Interface client, you usually want to use lscm instead of scm to execute commands.

I haven't tried the Waddiwasi flag :-)

Thank you Christophe, it was the Eclipse client that I was referring to. When I open the eclipse.ini file I see that the -Xmx value was already set to 1024m. Do you see any risks increasing it further?

Hello, anything similar to this cfg in RTC for VisualStudio?

Did you try "Waddiwasi"?

No, I haven't. What is that?

Sorry Sandra. I wasn't being very serious there. I'll blame the approaching weekend... :-)

The rumour you mentioned sounded a little magical so I googled for Harry Potter spells. Waddiwasi was the first one I saw that sounded relevant.
