Hi,

Since you are using Tomcat, struts applications etc. we should first determine who is causing this "out of memory" error. It seems that this is a Java error and to correct it you must modify the heap size settings of your Tomcat Application container.

When you're starting tomcat it launches an application container with defaults. Specify the JVM heap size in $TOMCAT_HOME/bin/tomcat.sh. You can specify '-Xmx256m -Xms128m' as part of TOMCAT_OPTS. That'll set your max/min JVM heap size to 256/128MBs, for example.

FYI : you can see the system memory usage with one of these comands:

To see the memory please issue:
 free
or  
 cat /proc/meminfo

top and ps also displays memory usage of each process.

Cheers,
K.

You may also wish to look at the output of 'top'

top

or

top -b -n 1 | less

Also check 'lsof'

man lsof

For example to see all processes which have a port bound in memory use

lsof -i -P
