SSD and GOES Animations: Increasing available memory
      #66375 - Sun Jun 11 2006 11:18 PM

This is one of those posts that needs to be prominent and yet is doesn't fit any topic on this board:

The new SSD Animations take a lot of memory and thus you often can't view both the SSD animations and the NASA GHCC GOES animations at the same time. This results in the animations not loading or them loading "error" images.

After a batch of searching and a little experimentation, here is how to increase your default memory allocation for the Java Virtual Machine that both SSD and NASA GOES from GHCC use:

For Windows, open your Control Panel.
Open the Java Plug-In control panel.
Under the Advanced tab, select the "Java Runtime Parameters"
For 128MBs of memory (double default, should be enough) enter: -Xmx128M
For 256MBs of memory enter: -Xmx256M
Click Apply
Restart your web browser

Running both NASA GHCC GOES and SSD at once, I'm at about 95MBs of memory - no wonder I was getting "out of memory" notices on the Java Console before with the default max of 64MBs of memory available.

--RC

Hope this helps
Mods: if there is a better place for this, put it there.

The above one was for Java 1.3/1.4

It is slightly different with Java 1.5:

Under control panel, go to Java or Java Plugin (names vary for all versions).
Click on the Java Tab.
Click on Applet Runtime Settings.
Click on View
Double-click on Java Runtime Settings box for the most recent version of Java (highest number). This box will be a small grey or white table cell.

For 128MBs of memory (double default, should be enough) enter: -Xmx128M
For 256MBs of memory enter: -Xmx256M

Click OK
Click OK

This should work!

They just arent as strong as they were the last few days and the one in the caribbean looks like its moving way to fast. But you never know anything could happen.
