You may encounter memory errors while attempting to import either one very large file, or a series of files. If this occurs, you will receive a message stating that there has been a memory error. Any files that were selected for import but not processed appear light gray in the list. It is recommended that you restart your web browser after receiving this error.
If you encounter the memory error, try the following:
Reduce the picture size or number of pictures:
If you are importing multiple files, try importing a smaller number of files at a time.
If you are importing a single, large picture, in iFIX, edit the picture so that it contains fewer objects. You can then re-export the picture and try the import again.
If you are importing a single, large symbol/tag group file, then that file should be broken up into multiple, smaller tag group files and re-exported. For more information on using multiple symbol files in a picture, refer to the iFIX Electronic Books symbols topics (tip: type symbols in the Electronic Books Index).
Increase the amount of memory available to the Java plugin. It is recommended that you increase the Java plugin memory on a temporary basis only, unless memory issues are persistent. To increase the memory:
Open the Java control panel.
Select the Java tab.
Click the Java Applet Runtime Settings View button. The Java Runtime Settings dialog box appears.
In the Java Runtime Parameters box, add -Xmx256m.
NOTE: 256 is a suggested number. If the number is higher, depending on the operating system, the Java plugin may fail to load.
Click OK twice to save your changes and close the Java control panel.
When the import is complete, remove the -Xmx256m.
NOTE: In some extreme cases, the import will never return (that is, the Import utility is unresponsive). If this occurs, cancel the import, restart your browser, and follow the same steps to prevent the problem (see previous bullet points).
