> Just Tomcat service terminated unexpectedly. ?  The JVM is often the largest user of memory on the system,
and hence the first victim when the killer has to run.

Note the line in there "Finally the accumulated score is bitshifted by the user-settable value
of /proc/<pid>/oomadj" - if it *is* the OOM killer, you can at least cause it not to
kill Tomcat but to choose some other victim :-).
