You need to use a VM that supports setGCBiasToGrowGCLimit
Which VM are you using?
Also to turn it on you need to do
Smalltalk setGCBiasToGrow: 1.
Other GC tuning values are below. The values given below have no
meaning for your application and may make it better, may make it worse.
Smalltalk vmParameterAt: 5 put: 8000. "do an incremental GC after
this many allocations"
Smalltalk vmParameterAt: 6 put: 4000. "tenure when more than this
many objects survive the GC"
Smalltalk vmParameterAt: 25 put: 24*1024*1024. "grow headroom"
Smalltalk vmParameterAt: 24 put: 48*1024*1024. "shrink threshold"
