Are you looking for How to increase the Memory for Pycharm? Here are a few steps. Let’s go through them. But before that close the Pycharm IDE / Application and restart after these steps.
How to increase Memory for Pycharm (Windows)-
Step 1 –
Go to the location on the disk where Pycharm is installed. For Windows user here is the default location.
Go to bin directory and open file pycharm64.exe.vmoptions .
This file contains the configuration related to memory area like heap size limit etc. By defaults, it looks like –
Xms128m -Xmx750m -XX:ReservedCodeCacheSize=240m -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:SoftRefLRUPolicyMSPerMB=50 -ea -Dsun.io.useCanonCaches=false -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Djdk.http.auth.tunneling.disabledSchemes="" -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError -XX:-OmitStackTraceInFastThrow
Steps 3 –
Change the value for -Xmx750m by -Xmx1024m or -Xmx2048m or as per your requirement. Now you may restart the Pycharm. That’s all.
Another way –
You may do it internally from IDE Pycharm itself. All you need to Go Help ->Find Action ->Edit Custom VM option. It will open the same file as you see in step 3 above. Change the values here and restart the Pycharm.
How it Impact?
