Thanks for your quick reply.

I don't think any of the file systems are in danger (we purposely spec'd 
large disks because they were cheap and we wouldn't have to deal with space 
shortages.)  df gives:

Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root             76896348    468464  72521680   1% /
/dev/sda4             66682840   8093552  55201984  13% /usr
tmpfs                  4085376         0   4085376   0% /dev/shm

Tomcat is in /usr/local/tomcat.

We have no quotas on any of the file systems (checked with 'quotacheck' just 
in case some rogue quota was set.)

No logs (other than the standard Tomcat logs.)  tomcat/temp currently has 
files totaling 272K... not likely that is a problem.

Actually, it's looking less and less like a memory problem here.  What about 
exhaustion of some other resource, such as a disk quota?  Do the 
applications create any kind of log files or otherwise use increasing 
amounts of disk as they run?
