[GeoNode-users] java heap size error uploading shapefile

Hi Alessio/Dan

I made the java changes as suggested and it appears to get a bit further. I now get this error:

An exception occurred loading data to PostGIS- java.lang.RuntimeException: java.io.IOException: Error occured calculating bounds for planpsvec_zones

Dan - To answer your questions in the previous email

Geoserver is running on jetty
Geonode is apache

Both are Ubuntu EC2 instances sitting behind AWS load balancers.

I have attached the geoserver log file, logging is currently to production_logging. I can amend this if it will provide you more information but it gets pretty large in size quickly.

I have imported the data into postigs database with the import extension on the server fine, so the data appears to be ok.

Hi Chris,
it is a bit strange the fact that you are getting a heap OOM error, as Daniel already said, it would be very useful to take a look at some logs in order to get some more info on the issue.

In any case, if you upgraded the available memory on your server you should also update the JVM Options.

If I understood correctly you now have about 8Gb RAM available, so maybe could be helpful to set the options like follows:

JAVA_OPTS="-Xms1024m -Xmx4096m -XX:MaxPermSize=1024m"

NOTE: maybe 4Gb is too much for your needs, it depends on your specific use case. You can also try with 2048m.

Best Regards,
Alessio Fabiani.

Hi all

I’m trying to upload a 200mb shapefile from Geonode into a RDS postgis database and keep getting a java heap size error. I have a separate EC2 instance running geoserver and have increased the instance to
T2 large so have 8gb RAM. Geoserver has no other layers and is not in production so it’s not being heavily used at all.

I’ve also tested different settings for the java heap size (see below). This is what it’s currently set to. I have increased these settings but the error persists.

JAVA_OPTS="-Xms1024m -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m"

Can anyone advise what to try next?? Is there a limitation on shapefile size??

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
