(:title Increasing the memory available to PaperCut:)

By default, the
PaperCut Application Server is restricted to a maximum RAM allocation of up to one quarter (1/4) of system memory.  This ensures that PaperCut does not consume too many resources and "plays nicely" with other applications that may be run on the same system.

If the server is dedicated to running PaperCut then you may choose increase the amount of memory made available
to PaperCut.  This can improve application performance, particularly on sites with many users or with large printing volumes.  Increased RAM allocation helps PaperCut by allowing it to perform optimizations such as disk and data caching.  Being a database driven application, PaperCut can benefit greatly.

A popular option with our customers is to allow PaperCut to use up to ½ of the machine’s memory, and then provision the machine
with at least 4GB of memory. That strikes a good balance between giving enough resources to PaperCut to process and analyze jobs, as well as letting the machine handle the OS level tasks required for a print server. Since server loads and performance vary greatly, we highly recommend testing the configuration and increasing memory (and CPU) if you are seeing performance issues that you suspect are due to low resources.

!! Increasing maximum memory (Windows/Linux/Novell)

To increase amount of memory available to PaperCut.

'''1.''' Create a text file called @@service.conf@@ in the directory: @@[app-path]\server\custom\@@

[-'''Please Note: The filename needs
to be service.conf and NOT server.conf'''-]

'''2.''' Open the file in a text editor and add the following line to make PaperCut use up to '''one third''' of physical RAM:

(:title Increasing the Memory Available to PaperCut NG and PaperCut MF:)

By default, the PaperCut NG and PaperCut MF '''Application Server''' is restricted
to a maximum RAM allocation of up to one quarter (¼) of system memory.  This ensures that the application does not consume too many resources, and "plays nicely" with other applications that may be run on the same system.

If the server is dedicated to running our software, then you may choose
to increase the amount of memory made available to the '''Application Server''' component of the solution. This can improve application performance, particularly on sites with many users or with large printing volumes.  Increased RAM allocation can help the solution by allowing it to perform optimizations, such as disk and data caching.  Being database driven applications, PaperCut NG and PaperCut MF can benefit greatly from such enhancement.

A popular option
with our customers is to allow the application to use up to ½ of the machine’s memory, and then provision the system with at least 4 GB of total memory. This can strike a good balance between giving the application enough resources to process and analyze jobs, as well as letting the machine handle the operating system level tasks required for a print server. Since server loads and performance vary greatly, we highly recommend testing the configuration and increasing allocated memory (and CPU cores) if you are seeing performance issues that you suspect are due to low resources.

'''Please Note:''' Somewhat counterintuitively, more is not always better; allocating the host of the
'''Application Server''' an excessive amount of total system memory can in some cases have a deleterious effect on performance. PaperCut NG and PaperCut MF are Java applications, and hence subject to Java "garbage collection" activities, which maintain proper memory allocation. When a great deal of memory is available to the '''Application Server''', full garbage collections will happen less frequently, but take longer to complete. The application must pause temporarily whilst these operations complete, so if the amount of memory available is imbalanced by a comparatively small amount of CPU resources, this may be observed as periodic spikes in highly unresponsive behavior. If unsure of the appropriateness of your resourcing, our [[https://www.papercut.com/kb/Main/PaperCutServerSizingGuide|Server Sizing Guide]] can be invaluable to check with.

!! Increasing Maximum Memory (Windows/Linux/iPrint)

To increase the amount of memory available to PaperCut NG or PaperCut MF:

'''1.''' Locate the text file called @@service.conf@@ in the following directory:

@@[app-path]\server\custom\@@

'''Please Note:''' If you're running a version of PaperCut NG or PaperCut MF prior to 17.3, you will instead need to create the @@service.conf@@ file in the directory noted above.

'''2.''' Open the file in a text editor and add the following line to allow the application to employ up to '''one third''' of total
physical RAM:

'''4.''' Restart the PaperCut Application Server service (On Windows do this in Control Panel->Admin Tools->Services).

to:
'''3.''' Save and close the text file.

'''4.''' Restart the '''PaperCut Application Server''' service. On Windows, this can be done via [@Control Panel->Administration Tools->Services@] by locating the '''PaperCut Application Server''' in the list of system services, right-clicking, and selecting to '''Restart''' it.

'''5.''' After the service is restarted, the '''Application Server'''
log file (@@[app-path]\server\logs\server.log@@) will show the new "max memory" setting.

Changed lines 41-50 from:
!! Increasing maximum memory (Apple Mac)

'''NOTE: This only works on PaperCut 9.6 and higher.'''

To increase amount of memory available to PaperCut on the Mac.

'''1.''' Create a text file in the directory: @@[app-path]\server\custom\@@ directory called
@@launch-app-server.conf@@.  Change the file permissions to make the file readable to all users (or at least the @@papercut@@ user).

'''2.''' Open the file in a text editor and add
the following line to make PaperCut use up to 256MB of physical RAM: 
to:
!! Increasing Maximum Memory (macOS)

'''Please Note:''' This method only works on version 9.6 and higher of PaperCut NG and PaperCut MF.

To increase amount of memory available to PaperCut NG or PaperCut MF on macOS:

'''1.''' Locate the text file called
@@launch-app-server.conf@@ in the following directory:

@@[app-path]\server\custom\@@

'''Please Note:''' If you're running a version of PaperCut NG or PaperCut MF prior to 17
.3, you will instead need to create the @@launch-app-server.conf@@ file in the directory noted about. Be sure to change the file permissions to make the file readable to all users, or at minimum, the @@papercut@@ host user account.

'''2.''' You will need to specify the amount of system memory available to the '''Application Server'''. Open the file in a text editor and add the following line to allow the application to employ up to, for example, 256 MB
of physical RAM: 
Changed lines 57-58 from:

'''3.''' Save the text file

'''4.''' Restart the PaperCut Application Server service (By running @@stop-server.command@@ and then @@start-server.command@@ scripts located in @@[app-path]/server/bin/mac/@@).

'''5.''' After the service is restarted the server log file (@@[app-path]/server/logs/server.log@@) will show the new "max memory" setting.


!! Running out of memory or High CPU usage

If PaperCut runs out of memory an @@[=OutOfMemoryError=]@@ will be displayed to the user and/or logged to the @@service.log@@ file. You may also see @@GC overhead limit exceeded@@ which is again an indication of running out of memory.

Another indication of running out of memory is very high CPU usage for extended periods of time, by the [@pc-app@] process/service as the service tries to rearrange RAM for various tasks.
to:
'''3.''' Save and close the text file.

'''4.''' Restart the '''PaperCut Application Server''' service by running the @@stop-server.command@@ script and then the @@start-server.command@@ script, both located in the following directory:

'''5.''' After the service is restarted, the '''Application Server''' log file (@@[app-path]\server\logs\server.log@@) will show the new "max memory" setting.
