Subject Re: Still unable to get a heap dump from Tomcat running on Windows as a service
Date Thu, 04 Feb 2010 17:25:39 GMT
Aaaaand the whole thing was a red herring.  Well, most of it anyway.  The
buggy download page wasn't, and, indeed, the GUI monitor cannot change
Tomcat's "run as" user despite pretending that it can, but those are
comparatively minor issues.

I'm sure that had Tomcat actually run out of memory, it would have dumped
heap.  The webapp in question, however, Hudson, did not have any memory
options set for the massive Maven build it was running, and, since it forks
a Maven process, it was the Maven process which was running out of heap.
Days like this, I tell you.

Thanks for all your help.
