    • Product Version: 3

    Description:
    If you notice the error “Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space” in the harvest log, please do the following:

    1) As dtl user, in /exlibris/dtl/j3_1/digitool/home/system/bin/harvester_direct.sh, change all the 3 appearances of Dbulk_size from:
    -Dbulk_size=1000\
    TO:
    -Dbulk_size=200\

    2) Re-run the harvest.

    This configuration prevents the memory crash while there is no performance impact on the harvest
