Subject Re: Geronimo disk footprint growth at startup

Thanks Bruce.. A few followup questions..

Is there any bound on how large these files can grow or a way to 
configure a smaller value for the recovery log?

Why does a simple server startup require 41M of recovery data?  No user 
applications have been installed on this server yet.

Just wondering if there is a way to limit the default disk footprint 
requirement for geronimo..
