Tuning graphloader JVM options 

How to tune graphloader JVM options.

The DSE Graph Loader is written in Java and has some configurable JVM tuning in the graphloader script.

The default maximum heap size is 10G, generally a good heap size for appropriately sized machine used with graphloader. Two environment variables, MAX_HEAP_SIZE and HEAP_NEWSIZE were added in DSE 5.0.5 and later. graphloader now calculates the values of these two environment variables in the same manner as Cassandra. If a particular value is desired for either variable, the value can be set directly in the graphloader script.
