Memory Optimization for the Geo Service Plugin

The Pentaho Geo Service enables Geo Map visualizations in Analyzer.

If you do not use Analyzer or use the Geo Service in Analyzer, you can free up approximately 200MB of RAM by removing the Geo Service plugin. Simply shut down the Pentaho Server and delete the /pentaho/server/pentaho-server/pentaho-solutions/system/pentaho-geo/ directory.

If you are a heavy user of the Geo Service, update the cache setting for pentaho-geo roles in the ehcache.xml. This file can be found in the /pentaho/server/pentaho-server/tomcat/webapps/pentaho/WEB-INF/classes directory. For example, if you add a large number of municipalities, you may want to increase the number of municipalities cached in memory or configure overflowToDisk for the pentaho-geo-municipality role.
