Increase system memory for Provar

Very large Salesforce orgs require Provar to have more memory allocated to download metadata and execute tests. 1024m system memory is assigned by default in Provar. If you want to change the memory allocation, you can take the following steps.

To allocate more system memory to Provar:

Step 1: Navigate to the Provar installation directory.

Step 2: Edit the file provar.ini.

Step 3: Increase the upper limit to the preferred value, e.g. -Xmx1024m.

Step 4: Save the file and restart Provar.

If you are unable to save the file (access denied), you can update your security settings as follows.

Step 1: Right-click on the provar.ini file and choose Properties.

Step 2: Click the System tab, select the User and click the Edit button.

Step 3: Select Users and Allow Full Permission and then click the Apply button.

Step 4: If this does not work, you can replace the file. First save the provar.ini file to another location (e.g. Desktop) and then rename the original. Then copy the modified file into the install directory.
