    I am getting an "out of memory error" causing me severe headaches. it brings the entire server down. I seems to happen about once every 24 hours of continuous run time. I get this error running MineOS+ in a RAMdisk. Both on a dedicated box with 3 gigs RAM, and in a virtual PC with 3 gigs dedicated out of 12 possible. I have removed all plugins and it takes much longer to happen, though still does.

    I know this may seem obvious - but what propt or command are you using to start the server? (it possible you could just be using the wrong syntax to designate the heap sizes)

    edit: In case I don't make any sense, are you actually designating all 3 GB of ram to the server?

    I am running on MineOS, which has a webui and uses a "start" button. The syntax they use, as I have found it in their code, is
     def execute(self, command, arg_string=None):
            if command == 'start':
                if self.mod == 'bukkit':
                    return 'cd %s; screen %s -dmS mc-%s %s -server -Xms%iM -Xmx%iM -jar %s -p %i -s %i -c %s -w %s -P %s' % \
                            os.path.join(environment.JAVA_PATH, 'java'),
                            os.path.join(environment.MC_PATH, self.server_jar),
    As for the ram, as I am running on a RAM disk, with the os having an overhead of about 200 megs, I am starting the server with the 32-bit max of 2.5 gigs. I have also ran it on 64-bit starting it with 2.7 gigs.

    What is the output of your "java - version" command? Have you tried running the server manually - aka, not through the MineOS script?

    When running on 64-bit, java output is

    openjdk version "1.7.0-internal"
    When running 32 bit, it was the latest stable java...

    Ohh and I have not run it manually as I am not 100% sure how to do so?

    To run it manually, open up a console (either SSH, or directly on the box) and type in:

    java -Xincgc -Xmx1G -jar craftbukkit.jar nogui

    Its as simple as that. Adjust the 1G as necessary. Also, you can stick with x64 Java - no reason to go to x86.

    I will give it a shot this evening! Thank you very much.
