Subject Re: Tomcat 4.0.1 and memory usage

```Anything you would normally pass on the command line to "java" -- you put
into CATALINA_OPTS

At some point in the script that starts tomcat, you'll see a line like
(*approximately*)
\$JAVACMD -classpath \$SOMETHING \$CATALINA_OPTS

or something like that -- so you can see that \$CATALINA_OPTS just gets
passed in as a string -- are you on windows?  oh well, close enough, you get
the idea i think  ;)

I don't know the minimum it requires -- I guess that would depend on usage
and how many servlets/jsp's you have.

I set mine (for mid-sized website on one server) to 256-384 and it seems
almost excessive for the amount of traffic, etc.  Play with it a bit, I
guess would be my answer, but maybe someone else knows a more precise
measurement.

cheers
