For the release-events-api performance issues in Kubernetes or OpenShift installations with explicit overrides of limits and requests memory allocations in the deployment, the following workaround provides guidelines to address loss of system stability associated with how the non-default settings were set up in the configuration. This issue is typically not encountered if the aforementioned explicit overrides are not implemented in the configuration. If more than 2 GBs of memory are required, perform the following procedure:
  1. Determine the memory requirement.
  2. Under spec > template > spec > containers in your yaml file, locate the line image: urbancode/velocity-se-release-events-api:x.x.x.xx.
  3. Add the command override as a sibling entry to image: in the form of the following:
    
         image: urbancode/velocity-se-release-events-api:x.x.x.xx
         command:
           - node
           - --max-old-space-size=xxxx
           - /release-events-api/release-events-api.min.js
             
  4. On the command line - --max-old-space-size=xxxx, enter the maximum memory requirement in the appropriate units.
