Adjust Heap space

The available heap space size directly affects the performance of impulse - especially if your are handling large signal data. To give impulse (and eclipse) enough buffers, you need to:

  • Call eclipse with additional parameters to modify available heap size
eclipse [normal arguments] -vmargs -Xmx2048M [more VM args]
  • or edit the config.ini of eclipse
-startup
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.v20120522-1813.jar
--launcher.library
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.200.v20120913-144807
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
-vmargs
-Xms512m
-Xmx2048m
-XX:+UseParallelGC
-XX:PermSize=256M
-XX:MaxPermSize=512M

You should adjust the heap at least to 2048M. I you have, give it more.

Linux Users

If you are faced with strange problems like empty menus, the GTK version might be the problem.
In most cases the problems can be solved by switching to GTK 2:

--launcher.GTK_version 2
See impulse and Linux for further information.
