Subject Re: Question about Tomcat memory leaks
Date Fri, 11 Apr 2008 12:30:38 GMT
you could activate jmxremove to track it in real time via JConsole :

Add these to JAVA_OPTS : -Djava.awt.headless=true

Also commercial products like Jprofiler are definitive good candidates
to track memory licks

of Tomcat to see if there might be a leak either in Tomcat self (saw some BZ, and ChangeLog
entries that something was fixed with 5.5.26), or also with their app?
