Subject Tomcat Crashing -- how do I read the resulting hs_err_pid11598.log?
Date Wed, 19 Jul 2006 23:57:37 GMT
I'm running Fedora Core 3, Tomcat 5.0.30, in a two server environment, where
we have an F5 load balancer and are doing session sharing at the Tomcat

The box has 4GB of RAM on it, and has experienced a memory failure.  We
tested the physical RAM on the server, and it failed 2 extended memory
tests, so we replaced the RAM.  We also saw that the swap space was only at
1.5GB, so we upped that to 6.5 GB.

Prior to this issue with memory, Tomcat ran just fine without error.

Now, Tomcat runs for about 30-45 minutes and crashes.

The catalina.out file has this:
# An unexpected error has been detected by HotSpot Virtual Machine:
#  SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0xb79d032a, pid=11598, tid=1886555056
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (1.5.0_03-b07 mixed mode)
# Problematic frame:
# V  []
# An error report file with more information is saved as hs_err_pid11598.log
# If you would like to submit a bug report, please visit:

so my question is:  how do I read/interpret the hs_err_pid11598.log file so
I can figure out what is happening here?

Kim :-)
