Increasing CellProfiler RAM limit beyond 64GB


I have developed a lengthy pipeline that uses 5 large images, and receive a memory error several steps into the pipeline. I am on a machine that has 256GB of RAM, but I see CellProfilers max memory for Java is 64GB. Is there a way to increase this and allow the program to access more RAM?

Some of this is likely outdated but did you take a look here; CellProfiler 2.0 FAQ

Also this post is pretty old but might help? Launch CellProfiler on OS X with more memory?

Let us know if those don’t solve the issue!


AFAICT, the only way to do it is to manually edit ; it’s on our radar to get fixed though!
