Subject RE: tomcat crash problem (INTERNAL)
Date Fri, 03 Oct 2014 08:25:11 GMT
Hi Ognjen,

Tomcat is crashing with the below error message.

java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: GC overhead limit exceeded

This problem is occurring in our production environment so as a workaround we are restarting
tomcat two times in the business hours. Due to these restarts tomcat is not crashing.

Here am attached some GC logs.

What kind of a crash is that? Does JVM crashes (look for a file named hs_err_pid*), or Tomcat
(look at Tomcat logs)? Send us the log files.

We need more information before we can diagnose the problem.
