Subject -Xmx/-Xms Parameters, Where do they go???
Date Mon, 24 Jun 2002 21:10:27 GMT
The tomcat users guide states, that to improve performance, more memory can
be allocated to tomcat in:

Modify your JVM memory configuration. Normally the JVM allocates an initial
size for the Java heap and that's it, if you need more then this amount of
memory you will not get it.
Nevertheless, in loaded sites, giving more memory to the JVM improves
Tomcat's performance. You should use command line parameters such
as -Xms/-Xmx/-ms/-mx to set the minimum/maximum size of the Java heap (and
check to see if the performance was improved).

QUESTION:  Where does this command go?  I assume the or the, but in which part of which one?   Anyone doing this?
