Oct 20, 2006 10:49:19 AM org.apache.tomcat.util.threads.ThreadPool$ControlRunnable run
SEVERE: Caught exception (java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space) executing org.apache.tomcat.util.net.LeaderFollowerWorkerThread@159611, terminating thread

You need to increase the PermGen size.  Add the following to the JAVA_OPTS or CATALINA_OPTS environment variable.

-XX:MaxPermSize=128m

As shinobun has pointed out, you need to increase your perm space.
Perm space is the space that the VM uses to store objects that do not have a representation at the java level, for example, class defenitions etc. It is not part of the java heap (set using -mx etc) and needs to be set separately.

I can reccomend reading suns docs on garbage collection to get an understanding of how memory works.

Is your problem solved?  Have you tried our recommendations?

As KnightFire said, perm space is different from the heap size, and this might not be affected by the admin console.

This command is good or bad ?

JAVA_OPTS=$JAVA_OPTS -Xms64m -Xms512m -Xmx128m -Xmx512m -XX:PermSize=128m -XX:PermSize=256m
export JAVA_HOME="/usr/java/jdk1.5.0_04/"

export PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin

export CATALINA_HOME="/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.20"

export TOMCAT_HOME="/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.20"

export CLASSPATH=.
 

JAVA_OPTS=$JAVA_OPTS -Xms64m -Xms512m -Xmx128m -Xmx512m -XX:PermSize=128m -XX:PermSize=256m
 

/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.20/bin/catalina.sh start

Open in new window
