Increasing heap space via SONAR_SCANNER_OPTS does not seem to help for me.
Here is my environment:
17:11:30.835 INFO: Scanner configuration file: /opt/dcc/dcarson/sonar-scanner-220.127.116.116-linux/conf/sonar-scanner.properties

- running sonar-scanner from a Linux command line (bash)
- executing ‘export SONAR_SCANNER_OPTS=-Xmx512m’ from command line to insert into environment, then running sonar-scanner (not setting this value in a config file)
- I’ve tried as high as 4196m (i.e., 4GB) and still get the OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
This is a trial key test to see if the product could replace our current static analysis tool. I am analyzing all C/C++ files in my checked-out clone. According to the log, my file filter is finding about 33K files based on my inclusion pattern.
Every attempt with a larger heap gives the same error.
