How to raise memory usage limits; MarkVision Professional 11.0 (MVP); Microsoft Windows NT 4; Microsoft Windows 2000; Microsoft Windows XP; Microsoft Windows Server 2003; Default memory usage limit of 256 MB



When monitoring large fleets (i.e., 500–1000 devices) with MarkVision Professional, you may need to increase the memory-use limit. 

NOTE: If the workstation's total amount of memory is equal to or below 128 MB, the default memory limit will be 128MB instead of 256MB. It is recommended you make a registry backup before performing this procedure. Lexmark will not be held liable for any errors made while editing the registry.

To raise the MVP "server" memory limit:


  1. Open the Windows registry using Regedit.
  2. Go to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Lexmark\MarkVision Server\Granite\1.0 hive.
  3. Select the Jvm_Options string value.
  4. Change this value from "-ms256M -mx512M" to "-ms512M -mx1024M".
  5. Restart your MVP service.
