I have a -Xms set to 128m and -Xmx set to 256. But does tomcat itself
takes 60M of 128M? ? ?

Its probably set in the jvm - the default heap size set is for 64 meg.
This can be changed using the -Xmx parmeters in the initial call to the
jvm. We set the max heap size for our tomcat to 128M using:

Tomcat when starting uses 60M memory in heap. Why is that it is using so
much memory in heap. I found this by running jprobe memory debugger. I
have just one application in the context of server.xml file and don't
think the entire application gets loaded into memory. After doing a full
garbage collection, the heap memory comes down to 11M. Is something
going wrong or is it the way tomcat behaves?
