Installation and Upgrade

Talend CommandLine as a Server is deprecated from Talend 7.1 onwards.

To gain in performance at runtime and when launching Talend CommandLine, you can edit the memory settings in the corresponding .ini file.


  1. Edit the Talend-Studio-linux-gtk-x86_64.ini file.
  2. Edit the memory attributes. For example:
    -vmargs -Xms512m -Xmx1536m -XX:MaxMetaspaceSize=512m
    Tip: For big projects, you may need to increase Xmx to 4096m.
  3. Edit the commandline-linux_x86_64.sh file.
  4. Change the following information:
    ./Talend-Studio-linux-gtk-x86_64 -nosplash -application 
    org.talend.commandline.CommandLine -consoleLog -data 
    commandline-workspace startServer -p 8002
    /My_Jvm_Path/java -jar
    -nosplash -application org.talend.commandline.CommandLine
    -consoleLog -data commandline-workspace startServer -p 8002
    -vmargs -Xmx1536m -XX:MaxMetaspaceSize=512m
    Tip: For big projects, you may need to increase Xmx to 4096m.
