I'm currently running Tomcat 4.0.4 on Windows XP in my development environment, and Tomcat 4.0.6 on FreeBSD in my production environment. Tomcat is consistently running out of memory on the production machine, with the default memory settings. I tried setting memory bounds in my development environment using -Xms and -Xmx to limit the memory in catalina.bat when Tomcat is actually getting launched, but it doesn't seem to be having any effect. The memory used by Tomcat grows past the cap, and it doesn't appear like it ever hits the ceiling of the JVM. Has anyone else encountered this problem, or know what might be happening? Thanks in advance, Brian
