Subject RE: Tomcat keeps growing in size on Win32

Looking at Tomcat with the task manager, it grows unchecked from a boot
value of about 45MB to however big I let it go; biggest I saw was 250MB
after about 6 days. At that point it's affecting system performance and I
have to reboot.  I'm pretty sure the GC would have run in there somewhere.

So, yes, the heap is growing, if that is what the task manager sees as
Tomcat's memory usage climbing (I think so); it will do so until I run out
of memory - I haven't let it get that far, though.

Garbage collection is a bit arbitrary and may not occur until there is a
