Can you increase maximum JVM memory limit to 32 GB? I had a message about insufficient memory a few days ago with a JVM memory limit set to 16 GB.

Not via UI, but if you open "C:\Bookmap\Config\launcher-options.conf" on Windows you can edit xmx parameter there

Hi, if I'm running DXFeed for 20 tickers with HIRO tracker for most, does that fall under the heavy use recommended specs? Will run IBKR TWS alongside as well as 1-3 browsers for TradingView charts.

Trying to decide if I should get the 5600X+32GB RAM or 5900X+64GB RAM. The 5800X doesn't make sense value-wise.

Would Multibook be a factor for increasing my core count needs?

Hi,
5600X is a bit on the lower end. 20 tickers is definitely a heavy use case. So 5900X sounds better.

Currently not but may be in future.

I'm actually just about to build a new PC and was thinking of going with a 5600x until I saw this thread. Would the 5800x or even possibly an intel i7 11700k or an i9 10850k work better with using 20 tickers?
