Hi Edward,

As per my experience with windows server, you should split your ram as follow

1) O/S = 2 GB
2) Postgres 9.5 = 8 GB
3) JAVA_OPTS = 4 GB (min 1024M - max 4096M)
4) Keep remain 2 GB for windows buffer

As far as concern about the environment variables you must assign the following variables in windows

4) Postgres bin directory location in PATH Variable with separation of ";"

These all above variables will show in about DHIS2 page, if its configured correctly.

I have a server with 16Gb RAM running Windows Server 2012 R2 and (currently) DHIS 2.16.  Given that it is mostly dedicated to DHIS2, what would you suggest is the best way to split the RAM between Java/Tomcat and Postgres for optimal DHIS2 performance?

Also, should I see anything under the ‘about DHIS2 page’ on a Windows server?  Mine currently displays:
