How to Resolve jenkins java.lang.outofmemoryerror permgen space issues?

jenkins-java-lang-outofmemoryerror-permgen-space-issues

jenkins-java-lang-outofmemoryerror-permgen-space-issues

Solution 1

In Windows: Go to environment variable and add following variables

export JAVA_OPTS=”-XX:MaxPermSize=512m -Xms512m -Xmx1024m”
export GRADLE_OPTS=”-XX:MaxPermSize=512m”
export SONAR_RUNNER_OPTS=”-Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m”

In Linux:
In my ~/.bash_profile file, I have set the following 3 variables. Note there are other variables in this file as well i.e. JAVA_HOME, ANT_HOME, SONAR_HOME, SONAR_RUNNER_HOME, etc:

export JAVA_OPTS=”-XX:MaxPermSize=512m -Xms512m -Xmx1024m”
export GRADLE_OPTS=”-XX:MaxPermSize=512m”
export SONAR_RUNNER_OPTS=”-Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m”

Solution 2
You can set the -Xmx or -XX:MaxPermSize in your Jenkins global configuration. To do this, navigate to Jenkins global configuration page (Manage Jenkins -> Configure System)

Name – JAVA_OPTS
Value – “-XX:MaxPermSize=512m -Xms512m -Xmx1024m”

You can set similarlity for maven, gradle, sonar as well under “Maven Project Configuration” or grade project configuration.

Name – GRADLE_OPTS
Value – “-XX:MaxPermSize=512m”

Solution 3

They way you can modify this value depends on the distribution and depending on the slave type

Master

In RedHat, for example, you can do it under /etc/sysconfig/jenkins using the variable JENKINS_JAVA_OPTIONS… i.e JENKINS_JAVA_OPTIONS=”-XX:MaxPermSize=512m”.
In Ubuntu, the Jenkins configuration file is under /etc/default/jenkins and the variable to configure is JAVA_ARGS … i.e JAVA_ARGS=”-XX:MaxPermSize=512m”.

Slave

Sometimes slave machines will require permgen to be increased. Depending on the type of slave that is configured will require a different method for setting any java argument.

With SSH Slaves, the java process is started using an SSH command, so the “-XX:MaxPermSize=512m” can be set in the JVM Options in the Node configuration page.
With JNLP Slaves launching as a service on linux, you can add the VM arguments to the startup scripts (usually in /etc/sysconfig/jenkins or /etc/default/jenkins as part of the JAVA_ARGS variable)
With JNLP Slaves launching as a service on Windows requires modifications to be made on the jenkins.xml file which is located on slave machine in the JENKINS_HOME directory.
