We faced the following message in Worldserver:
Completed Segment Asset step of task 1 in time [00:03:02] on engine [enginenamemayvary] with result Error. Execution output: Error while executing automatic action: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: GC overhead limit exceeded
This error may also appear at other steps in the Workflow as well.
Increase the Java maximum heap memory available to WorldServer, after first checking to see that more memory is available on the application server machine. In Windows, this can be done from a command window, assuming the user has sufficient privileges.
Starting from version 10.4.5 and later versions, follow the instructions in this article:
WorldServer does not have enough Java heap memory. It tries so often to free up memory for what it needs, that it is spending too much time in Java memory management, with not enough left over to do WorldServer work.
