Try growing your perm gen space--this is at 99% and may be thrashing a bit.  Start Tomcat
with -XX:MaxPermSize= and a suitable value.

You may find perm gen usage stabilizes at some point, or keeps growing indefinitely.  If the
latter, look for excessive use of class loading in your application.   Excessive application
redeploying in Tomcat may cause the same thing.
