Seeing lots of java processes under Linux is normal. Those are not 
processes but threads, and the fact that they are shown as processes by 
"ps" is due to a "feature" of Linux's kernel threads implementation. If 
you look carefully, you'll see that all those threads are using the same 
amount of memory, that is the memory used by the whole JVM. In other 
words, you shouldn't sum those values in determining the amount of 
memory used, but count them only once.
