For example:   

Apache Tomcat Application Server: edit JAVA_OPTS in the ‘Catalina.bat/sh’ file   

WebLogic Application Server:  edit JAVA_OPTIONS in the ‘startWeblogic.cmd’ file   

WildFly/EAP Application Server:  edit JAVA_OPTS in the ‘standalone.conf’ file   

Set the JVM flags on a JEE installation of ColdFusion, not on a standalone installation.
