Tanuki 32-bit wrapper.exe on 64-bit Windows


We're upgrading from SAS 9.3/Windows Server 2008 to SAS9.4/Windows Server 2012.

I know that Tanuki Java Service Wrapper have changed their licensing such that the 64-bit wrapper.exe is no longer free.

SAS are using the 32-bit community edition wrapper for a number of their Java web applications, even on 64-bit Windows.

Are there any performance implications with this approach?  I assume no, unless a Java web application required > 4GB of memory, but just want to confirm.

Interesting question as the xmx option

- and others  (many times)

Is mentioned to be increased as out of memory conditions.

This changes the question to the one. SAS applications can run with a limited amount of memory.

Using those SAS applications you have to specify the upper limit for your application. Can you run your applications with that limited amount of memory
