FAQ Section: Performance Tuning
  1. How can I increase the amount of memory available to Poseidon?
  2. Why should I use the latest JDK 1.5?

    Because the JDKs keep improving in performance considerably and many bugs are fixed. If you use the batch script to start Poseidon, then simply set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to the JDK base directory. If you used the installer, either make a fresh install, use the batch file that the installer wrote to Poseidon's bin subdirectory, or edit the "Poseidon for UML xE.lax" file in Poseidon's installation directory.
  3. Why are big diagrams so much slower than small ones?
  4. Loading, Saving and Importing takes a lot of time
  5. How can I make Poseidon run faster?
  6. The startup of poseidon takes to much time (minutes)
