  • SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4.0
  • SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4.1

Cause

This is caused by a lack of memory (i.e. heap) in the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). 

Resolution

Extra memory can be allocated when launching a job by editing the JVM argument line and updating the following parameter at the beginning of the line:

-Xmx1024m in the JVM Arguments section - as follows if running from the CMC:


And as follows if running from the 360eyes_GUI_BI4.bat file located under the directory 360eyes\tools:

Note: Typically, the default maximum Java allocation is -Xmx1024m, It can be increased if that value is insufficient. For example -Xmx2048m.
