If you run TrackStudio in *nix VPS (Virtual Private Server), you can get the errors “VM object heap”, and the reason for them can be the method of VPS memory management. JVM tries to estimate how much memory is available to it based upon the information from the same sources, which are used by the utilities ‘free’ and ‘top’. For example, VServer VPS returns the total memory on physical machine, and does not reflect the limits of memory for virtual machines.
For correcting the situations, JVM must be instructed how much memory needs to be used:

> sman -J-Xmx256m
> jetty -J-Xmx256m

If you are using DBMS HSQLDB, the data base files will look like tsdb.lck, tsdb.log, and tsdb.script. Do not delete them.
