Greetings !!

While importing my pvcs vm database of 51 MB size, I am getting the following exception in svnimporter.log:

05:47:34,813 [main] DEBUG PvcsProvider:80 - get all contents for C:\TEMP\local\pvcs.tempdir\pvcs.tempdir
05:50:33,580 [main] ERROR Main:96 - EXCEPTION CAUGHT: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space

05:50:34,799 [main] DEBUG SvnAdmin:80 - cleanup
05:50:34,799 [main] INFO historyLogger:84 - duration: 3321 seconds

An empty repository with no data is created.

Please let me know how to avoid this error.

Also since I am a newbie to svnimporter tool, please let me know if we can migrate archived files of PVCS VM to SVN Edge.

Thanks in advance.

if you're running the importer via run.bat, please edit the file in the line:
set JAVA_OPTS=-Xmx192m

set more memory to the Java, e.g.
set JAVA_OPTS=-Xmx1500m

if your computer has 2+ GB RAM.
You can play with the number, as 51MB is not so big database, so smaller number should work too.

Best regards,

BTW, this topic is posted in wrong forum - it belongs to SVN Importer, not SVN Web Client

Not sure I understand: do you have Java 7 installed or not?


PS: make also sure you do Help -> Check for updates in the Gephi menu, then a restart.
