Java will use as much as you let it. The amount of memory is dependent more
on your app. than Tomcat. You can write inefficient code that will kill any
platform or you can write very efficient code that will hardly tax the
system. Tomcat itself does not require that much to run. You should also
consult the documentation for the garbage collector in the version of the
JVM you are using for settings to control how much memory to allocate, grow
by, and parameters for when to garbage collect.

Subject: Tomcat Requirements

I read much about memory usage and processes
but nobody can say how much memory I need!
I have to define the budget for the environment
for a solution to serve 1000-3000 concurrent users.
Which hardware should I buy,

I want to use Linux.
Please give me an hint.
