Subject Tomcat 4.1 ignoring -Xmx params
Date Tue, 28 Jan 2003 16:49:18 GMT
Hey folks, has anyone observed scenarios where Tomcat appears to ignore
the -Xmx param? We are running 4.1 as a service on Win 2000 Pro, and have
manually uninstalled/reinstalled the tomcat service as follows:

to uninstall:
tomcat.exe -uninstall "Apache Tomcat 4.1"

to install:
tomcat -install "Apache Tomcat 4.1"
"E:\sun\j2sdk1.4.1_01\jre\bin\client\jvm.dll" -Xmx256m -Xms128m -Djava.class
.path="D:\Program Files\Apache Group\Tomcat
4.1\bin\bootstrap.jar" -Dcatalina.home="D:\Program Files\Apache Group\Tomcat
4.1" -Djava.endorsed.dirs="D:\Program Files\Apache Group\Tomcat
4.1\common\endorsed" -start
org.apache.catalina.startup.BootstrapService -params start -stop
org.apache.catalina.startup.BootstrapService -params stop -out "D:\Program
Files\Apache Group\Tomcat 4.1\logs\stdout.log" -err "D:\Program Files\Apache
Group\Tomcat 4.1\logs\stderr.log"

What we are seeing here is that everything seems to work just fine, but
Tomcat does not seem to stop at the 256m max that we are requesting? Is this
to be expected? Or are we doing something stupid?

Thanks much,
