Hi: There!

I have tomcat and MYSQL running in same machine. My OS is Linux Ubuntu. I try to see how big memory consumption by MYSQL and JVM(tomcat). My stratergy is to use: free -m to check how big memory is used by both of them. Then I try to check tomcat JVM's conumption. After that, I also could know the memory consumption of database. But I do not know how to check JVM memory consumption. Could someone tell me some solution or are there better way?

and be aware that its memory usage will grow over time so check its usage at startup as well as after it has been nrunning for a decent amount of time.
