maxdsiz 167616512 / 2063835136
maxdsiz_64bit 46587904 / 7516192768

these are the parameter which define the data size of a process & the values are in bytes..


The current setting limits are 2GB for 32bit application & 7GB for 64bit application

If you don't have any JNI, you can use -d64 to have java use 64 bit JVM.
