    My cpu has 6 gigs of ram. But whenever I try to bring my ram up, it does not work.

    Echo OFF
    SET BINDIR=%~dp0
    CD /D "%BINDIR%"
    "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe" -Xmx1500M -Xms1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar
    PAUSE

    That is my current BAT code. Please, my server lags a lot, and I am using almost none of my ram while having 3 people on it and playing. So I would like to fix that.

    You need a 64bit system to use more then 2GB of memory..

    instead of putting "1500M" in the memory amount, you can also do something like "3G"

    Ok I just got the 64bit version of Java, so that is fixed.

    Grazie.

    Wait, so Xmx is the memory? Not Xms?

    Sorry for the relpy spam, but it worked! THanks!

    Xmx is the maximum memory Java can use, Xms is the starting memory that is allocated to Java when you start Bukkit.

    So Xms is how much my server really uses, until it starts to lag an decides to use more?

    Xms is the starting memory which gets instantly allocated, Xmx is the maximum that Java will be able to use (More will be allocated if required). (As I said before)

    Xms should be kept as low as possible.
