    Have you tried increasing the amount of memory for the JVM?

    This is a simple guide to assist you.  I suspect your values may be low but best check in case there is an underlying issue causing heavy memory utilisaton.  Check your other JVMs as well.  If one is low they may all be low.

    Hi Sahil, I Think you should increase your memory heap size of your JVM Applicaiton Server. Check if your max heap size is 4G.

    If you are looking for performance information you can go here:  The minimum for your JVMs is 4GB and recommended is 6GB. That is for both initial and Maximum values.  If you are running into memory issues inside Maximo then you should also look at the rest of the performance guide for tuning.
