Subject Re: Tomcat with 8 GB memory

Could you provide some additional information?
So far 64bit machines always outperformed 32bit machines in my
personal benchmarks as well as in third party benchmarks I stumbled
upon.

So it would be great if you could provide some links or explanations.

thank you
