 If they are, your app could be spending too much time waiting for the garbage collector,
and you will need to increase the heap size in your startup file.

Thanks for the replies. I will monitor the free heapspace from now on. 
If i see something that concludes to this problem, i'll let you know.
For which exact Memory Pool i should have a watchout? Here are my 
current used loads:
- PS Eden Space: 89%
- PS Old Gen: 4%
- PS Survivor Space: 33%
I dont get a stacktrace when the app runs slowly. I also only get this 
issues when the configuration is in developing mode. It persists even 
Clock is set correctly, AutoDeploy is On, running in development mode 
(myFaces). I cant determine how Jasper should be configured.
