Configuring HQ with the hq.vmoptions file

Voyager HQ can be configured using the hq.vmoptions file in a manner similar to configuring Voyager Server using the Voyager.vmoptions file. 

The hq.vmoptions file is located in the HQ installation directory, for example C:\Program Files\Voyager\HQ. An example is shown below.

# The maximum java heap size. On systems with more memory it's beneficial to increase this setting. 
# A general guideline is to ensure that this value doesn't exceed half of the available system 
# memory, up to a maximum of 6-8 gigabytes. 
# Example: on a system with 8G of total ram a good setting is 4G: -Xmx4g
-Xmx728m

# home directory, at "~/.voyager/hq".
