anybody knows how to set the JVM memory usage in Tomcat webserver?
In my machine, the VM may not be using all of the machines available memory. So i have to Increase the
size of the JVM memory with the following command:
java -ms32000000 -mx128000000 classname
This will set the initial size to 32M and the max size to 128M.
Please let me know if anybody has any idea.
I think u already have sufficient memory allocated for the server. even if u go beyond than what u r using currently, will not improve performance of ur server ( if that's the intention).
There are many factors like hardware dependent factors, OS dependent factors, code itself, server implementation etc. that affects the performance of tomcat server.
Whay do you want it to use memory?
It will start to use more memory if you throw more requests at it (Since each request = a thread = a stack + more information on the heap if your thread creates objects.)
