Increase heap space on Linux

Dear Knime users,

I'd like to increase the heap space for the KNIME java vm. On windows, this can be done through the $ROOT/knime.ini file. I tried that on linux, but it didn't work. The knime.ini only has one line:

The heap space error does not occur under windows with this option in knime.ini

I use the 64bit version of KNIME.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Thanks in advance,


You have to use the .knime.ini file (notice the "." at the beginning). This will change with KNIME 2.0 then it is knime.ini like on Windows.

Thanks, that solved it. Maybe this is worth an FAQ entry?
