Vivado - Report Utilization of implemented design in GUI causes out of memory error

Description

In my Kintex-7 design, I receive a "GUI out of memory"  message when I click Report Utilization in implemented design.

However, there is free memory on the machine (over 30GB).

When I run "report_utilization" in the Tcl command line, it works with no issues.


The error only occurs with the "report_utilization" -name option.

Solution

This message refers to the JAVA memory allocated to the Vivado IDE. 

This is the memory which is running out.

A work-around is to increase the amount of JAVA memory that is being allocated.
