Subject Re: Tomcat with 8 GB memory
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2007 08:57:27 GMT

I would discourage to use such machine! 8GB means you are using 64 bit
machine which will be much slower than 32 bit machines. Big memory is useful
ONLY if you have applications that can benefit big memory such as database
systems. In Java, if you use lots of memory and create lots of objects, your
Java applications will have periodic seisures! This is because of garbage
collection will take significant time, if started. 

I would be happy with 1 ~ 2 GB 32bit machines! This could deliver much
faster services.
