Subject Tomcat maximum heap size on Linux
Date Wed, 07 Jan 2004 19:37:02 GMT

I wanted to increase Tomcat's maximum heap size. I did it by putting the 
following string in the file (I'm running RedHat Linux):

CATALINA_OPTS="-Djava.awt.headless=true -Xmx1024m"

So, Tomcat can use 1Gb of my RAM.

However, I'm observing Tomcat's usage with "top" under Linux and it stops 
growing at 150Mb.

Looks like this option doesn't work. Where else could I increase it?

I'm using JDK 1.4.2, Tomcat 4.1.24
