Subject Re: Memory climbs until I get an OutOfMemory Error

We are experiencing the same issue.  It doesn't appear that there is a clear answer, just
lots of guessing.  We have contacted Novell because we are using their Portal services.  We
have upgraded Tomcat, change parameters in the web.xml, and files and no
luck.  We are using a Windows 2000 to run Tomcat.  Please forward me anything you get that
could resolve this.

I have a weird issue on a server.  The server is a Windows 2000 Server
with IIS installed and Tomcat 4.1.12.  It uses the isapi connector to
proxy requests from IIS to Tomcat.  Everything has been working fine
with this setup for several months.  Last week, I tried to add a new
application to the Tomcat instance.  This application is a bit more than
the existing app - it has a JDBCRealm and connection pool setup.  

Here's the strange behavior.  After starting Tomcat, the memory used
climbs to about 48MB, but when I hit the first page in the new app - the
memory usage by "java.exe" starts climbing off the charts.  It increases
by about 1 MB every second and before long it reaches the threshold
(256MB) and it throws an out of memory error - and it's just on the
welcome page!  

The only thing I've changed since dropping my app in tomcat is to use
tomcat's authentication, rather than passing it through from IIS.  Has
anyone else seen this behavior?
