  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When viewing large RPT reports in the Rational Test Control
    Panel (RTCP) web interface, RTCP can run out of memory and
    crash.
    The default Java heap size is not specified in the start scripts
    so it defaults to 512MB.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    1. Shut down RTCP
    
    2. Edit the setenv script
        Windows typically: C:\Program
    Files\IBM\RationalTestControlPanel\bin\setenv.bat
        Non-Windows typically:
    /opt/IBM/RationalTestControlPanel/bin/setenv.sh
        Add the preferred memory allocation by adding the -Xmx
    parameter:
    
        SET JVM_ARGS=-Xmx2048m -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true
    -Djava.net.preferIPv6Addresses=false
    
    3. Re-start RTCP
