Subject Re: Tomcat Memory Status?
Date Sun, 23 Jul 2006 05:09:30 GMT

Thank you both so much for the replies.

That makes perfect sense. To recap:
Max memory: The maximum amount of memory allowed to be allocated by the
Tomcat instance.
Total memory: The amount of memory that is currently allocated. Memory isn't
allocated until it is needed.
Free memory: The amount of free memory within the currently allocated block.
This doesn't include available memory that hasn't been allocated by Tomcat.

So with: Free memory: 2.17 MB Total memory: 5.84 MB Max memory: 63.56 MB 

I really have approximately 63.56MB - 5.84MB + 2.17MB = 59.89MB available
which isn't really near tapping the server out. Start worrying when Total
Memory creeps up near Max Memory.

Thanks guys
