I want to install Alfresco based in an OpenVZ VM based on the following 
recipe.  Do you think that will be sufficient if I allocate 1GB RAM to 
the OpenVZ VM?



  4) Tune jvm memory settings. This is based on recommendations in the 
Alfresco Installer Guide pdf. Settings are tuned for a 768MB VM, which I 
think it should be the minimum memory for this app, which is memory 
heavy. I'm also setting the MySQL Hibernate Dialect as a jvm param.

echo JAVA_HOME="/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/" >> /etc/environment
source /etc/environment
echo JAVA_OPTS=\"\${JAVA_OPTS} -Xms512m -Xmx512m\" >> /etc/default/tomcat6
echo JAVA_OPTS=\"\${JAVA_OPTS} -XX:MaxPermSize=128M\" >> 
-Dhibernate.dialect=org.hibernate.dialect.MySQLInnoDBDialect\" >>
