Query for number of policies and jobs

One quick query that How many Policies one can create on a server in Netbackup

 

One of our backup server  does backups of 2 non-GEO testlab OSS:es.
There are about  31 policies and about 600 jobs in activity monitor .
We faced an issue where   Java heap space  of Netbackup GUI goes out of space and  could not monitor the jobs status.
 
 
Maximum Availabe Memory is set as 512MB in  file /usr/openv/java/nbj.conf
 
 
# cd /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/user_ops/nbjlogs
bash-3.2# grep -i memory *
jbp.root.jnbSA.17612.log:       FROM[29]: MEGABYTES_OF_MEMORY = 0
jbp.root.jnbSA.22967.log:Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
jbp.root.jnbSA.22967.log:Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space

Will increasing  this value to 1 GB help?

Netbackup does not have a

Netbackup does not have a upper limit on the number of policies - how ever a very large number indicate a lack of design :)

I don't think 31 polices in any way can be considered many.

You can adjust the Java memory heap , take a look at these tech notes:
