FAQ - Installation & Setup
How can I increase the performance of Astah?
The performance level of Astah depends on the RAM capacity of your machine.
Try following methods:
Use the latest Java environment. (
How to use a specific version of the JavaVM
Turn off the mouse cursor tracing option
in some environments, having this option on will make rendering slower.
Tune some garbage collection settings.
When the value of INITIAL_HEAP_SIZE is set to 16m, the garbage collection does not work fully unless your computer uses more memory than 16MB.
NOTE: Do not set the value of MAXIMUM_HEAP_SIZE too small because it could cause "OutOfMemoryErrors" and Astah may not work properly.
