Subject Re: Memory usage Tomcat 3.3 vs 5.5
Date Tue, 25 Apr 2006 19:53:59 GMT

Hi all,

Following up on this thread, we took a dump of the heap running tomcat 5.5. 
There is no good reason for JMX to consume 9-10 Meg.
97,236     5,178,736 array of char

25,494     3,463,312 array of java/util/HashMap$Entry

105,908     3,389,056 java/util/HashMap$Entry

98,510     3,152,320 java/lang/String

98,200     2,356,800 
javax/management/modelmbean/DescriptorSupport$ValueHolder

25,343     1,216,464 java/util/HashMap

348         830,888 array of byte

18,222     728,880 javax/management/modelmbean/ModelMBeanAttributeInfo

21,937     526,488 javax/management/modelmbean/DescriptorSupport

Has anybody looked in the code where the DescriptorSupport class is used? 22 
thousand of these things is simply absurd. Nearly 100 thousand 
DescriptorSupport.ValueHolder objects is even crazier. My guess is that the 
HashMap usage is related to the DescriptorSupport.

Thanks,

Abhi.

We're also using TC 3.3 on our production systems and are switching to TC 
5.5.

The memory penalty is real but you'll be using up to date and actively
maintained stuff with TC 5.5.

Also you could try to reduce the AJP13 / HTTP 11 threads and remove
some JMX Listeners
