  • This page discusses varaious memory issues. In a nutshell - if your computer has less than 128MB of ram - you will probably have trouble. Anyhow, also read the following threads for other memory related issues: Also look at JProbe, or OptimizeIt, or other profiling tools. Lots of people recommend these tools. This is not an endorse for them, I just notice other people like them.

    Q: How do I adjust memory settings?
    A: First look at java -X to determine what parameters to set. Then you can set them via the environment variable JAVA_OPTS. Read the files catalina.bat or for more information on JAVA_OPTS.
