Hi Guys,

We're using JMeter to load test our web based Java application, deployed in Linux server, web server : apache tomcat.

We run it for 25 concurrent users. And the memory spike into 2GB.

Then we stop the test on JMeter, but the memory is still on 2Gb, why the memory doesn't decrease although we had stopped the test in JMeter?
