Why am I getting R14 Errors in Java


My Java application's logs have R14 errors in them


This error indicates that your dyno does not have enough RAM to contain the JVM's memory. As a result the Linux operating system has moved some pages to disk (a process called swapping). When the operating system does this, it does not differentiate between heap and non-heap memory in the JVM. If heap memory is swapped, it can result is significant performance degradation.

To change Java's memory usage, use the arguments -Xms<memory> or -Xmx<memory>. Use m or g after the numbers to indicate Megabytes and Gigabytes respectively. -Xms indicates the minimum and -Xmx the maximum.

Refer to Troubleshooting Memory Issues in Java Applications for details.
