If Tomcat is Running out of Memory...

If your Tomcat is running out of memory, take a look at the following issue posted by Atlassian. It affects basically all Tomcat versions including Tomcat 6.

The fix is to set the following JVM parameter:

-Dorg.apache.jasper.runtime.BodyContentImpl.LIMIT_BUFFER=true

And, just for completeness - if you need to specifiy JVM parameters for Tomcat, create a file called setenv.sh in your Tomcat's bin directory.

e.g.

#!/bin/sh

CATALINA_OPTS=" \
-Xms512m -Xmx512m \
-XX:PermSize=128m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m \
-server \
-Djava.awt.headless=true \
-Dorg.apache.jasper.runtime.BodyContentImpl.LIMIT_BUFFER=true"

export CATALINA_OPTS

Tomcat will pick up the file automatically when it starts up. Regarding Permspace issues, there was a good discussion about it over at Matt Raible's Blog.
