Subject Re: Tomcat Memory Problems and WebTrends

You can configure webtrends to not pull the HTML title. That is all webtrends 
is doing. (I think). If you don't need the HTML title inyour report - woohoo 
- problem solved.

PS: I hate webtrends

WebTrends server makes a request to every page in the Apache access_logs. I believe this is
to obtain the HTML title for the WebTrends reports. I've noticed that when WebTrends makes
it's requests, Tomcat's memory starts to climb dramatically. I modified httpd.conf to pipe
the access_logs into a script I wrote which outputs the line from the access_log (actually
a shorter custom Format) and the amount of memory that Tomcat is using. I've attached a sample
at the end of this email. As you can see from 03:36:59 AM to 04:01:15, Tomcat's memory almost
doubles. On some nights, Tomcat actually stops accepting requests and I have to kill all of
the java processes in order to restart Tomcat. I've attempted to recreate this problem using
The Grinder (load tester), but cannot do so.
