Increase System Memory For Provar

Very large SFDC Orgs require Provar to have more memory allocated to download Metadata and execute tests.  Follow the steps below in order to allocate more system memory to Provar Application:

  • Navigate to Provar installation directory
  • Edit the file provar.ini
  • Increase the upper limit to be -Xmx1024m
  • Save the File and restart Provar


If you are unable to save the file (access denied), you need to update your security settings:

  • Right click provar.ini and choose Properties

  • Choose System, select the User and click on Edit


  • Select Users and Allow Full Permission and Apply


If this does not work, replace the file

  • Save the provar.ini file to another location (e.g. Desktop)
  • Rename original
  • Copy modified file into install directory
