You may choose from a myriad of options for the
rvm command-line. Options fall into two categories: standard and non-standard. Non-standard options are preceded by "
-X:" and differ between virtual machines (e.g. Jikes RVM's options may not be available in HotSpot and vice-versa).
Standard Command-Line Options
The non standard command-line options are grouped according to the subsystem that they control. The following sections list the available options in each group.
Note that the non-standard options may change from one release to another. To get a definite list, use the -X option and related options (e.g. -X:gc) on the image that you have built.
