You need to increase Tomcat's VM memory limits, especially the one controlled by the "-xMx" option.

A good way to do that is to create a file named TOMCAT_HOME/bin/ or TOMCAT_HOME\bin\setenv.bat and put a JAVA_OPTS assignment statement in it.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
