AEM 6.0 SP3 environment was upgraded following documented steps to AEM 6.1.

Applying AEM 6.1 SP1 to Author instance via the Package Manager failed with the following error:

Error during processing:

java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: GC overhead limit exceeded

After several attempts disabled GC overhead limit with the following JVM param:

-XX:-UseGCOverheadLimit

The SP now appears as tho it MAY finish installing someday, however, it is iterating through Aggregation status messages and has been for over 10hrs. And there are java heap errors in the logs.

Currently at:

- Aggregation status: 57 of 29049 prepared, 28278 collected.

Incidentally, the application of SP1 to the corresponding Publish instance completed normally.

Has anyone else experienced this behavior?  Recommendations?

 

Thanks.

2GB might not be enough. Try bumping it to 4GB and then try. I am pretty sure you'll be alright.
