Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I run YouTrack on a small server. By default it launches a lot of processes that take all available memory.

Manipulations with Java parameters don't help, so as I see, the only way to reduce memory usage is to limit the number of processes. Is there a way to do that?

UPD: The system is running Debian GNU/Linux

Yes, install MS-DOS. That'll limit your number of processes real fast. Otherwise, perhaps mentioning the operating system in question might be helpful. –  HopelessN00b Sep 7 '12 at 18:40
Whoops. Thank you for pointing to that. Fixed. –  Roman Prykhodchenko Sep 10 '12 at 11:34
Have you asked JetBrains about the problem? –  Brent Pabst Sep 10 '12 at 12:44
No. I will definitely do this, if community cannot help me in a reasonable time. In that case I will share a solution here. –  Roman Prykhodchenko Sep 10 '12 at 13:57
