-----JVM Options-----

-XX:CompileCommand="exclude,java/lang/Object.wait" - To prevent Object.wait from being JIT-compiled (and thus making wait info always available)
-Xmx_g - Selects the maximum memory sizes available to the JVM. These values are used for the JVM heap, which reserves memory. Something like -Xmx16g [Remember to replace the _]
-d64 - For 64-bit machines only. This options should be specified when a large JVM heap is required (greater than 4 Gbytes) and the architecture is 64-bit.
-XX:NewSize=512M - In heavy throughput environments, you should consider using this option to increase the size of the JVM young generation. By default, the young generation is quite small, and high throughput scenarios can result in a large amount of generated garbage. This garbage collection, in turn, causes the JVM to inadvertently promote short-lived objects into the old generation.
