Hi Jon,

This is not crash (OutOfMemoryError). So I do not have hs_err log.

Reserved memory will affect overcommit memory in OS.
In case of Linux, it may cause of OOM-killer.
So I want to check CompressedClassSpaceSize before initialization.

Thank you for your suggestion.
May I file it to JBS?


Thanks,
