When I first installed JIRA it consumed about 250Mb of my RAM. I then thought "oh my, that's a lot", well for me at least that's a lot.
After creating a project in JIRA (yes, 250Mb memory usage without any issues... in the system) I was recommended by JIRA to reindex. So I did. And then the memory usage increased to about 700Mb. Now, I understand that the reason for the increase is the indexing. But what I would like to know is how to decrease the memory usage. What I would like to index are my issues and projects. What is JIRA indexing that will require 700Mb in-memory? And how do I fix this?
