This is due to the fact that your system has a rather high security 
setting. I have the same thing on my Mandrake. Basically, java is unable 
to read /proc file system and cannot determine some facts about it's own 
process. This is mostly harmless, since my TC is running with that, no 

Perhaps it could be worthwhile to investigate and see what permissions 
tomcat user should have on the system to access /proc FS. It is also a 
good question whether or not, tomcat user *should* have access to proc fs.
