    I have been trying to host a small private server on my computer for myself and a few friends, I changed the .bat file to the following:

    java -Xms1024M -Xmx2048M -jar ftbserver.jar

    However, when the server window appears after launch it states that I am currently using 113 mb with 53% free. Does this mean that my server is not utilizing my allocated ram? Am I doing something incorrect?

    I have 16gigs of ram so I would like to at least allocate 2 to FTB when its running.

    I am not incredibly literate when it comes to these issues, so I do appreciate any help offered here.

    I believe he is referring to the minecraft server GUI showing him what is currently being utalized by the server... Now i personally do not know the exact reason but i know that number will go up as more ppl connect... For example i have 4 gig dedicated to it now, in my processes i can see it has allocated it, however in my GUI it shows... uhh 187mb (45% free) with just myself and a friend connected. If my wife connected it would go up to about 212 i think?

    So windows has allocated the full 4 gig... but its just not using it all now but it will use more and nessesary... if someone has more to say in regards to that? i'd love to hear it.
