I have a very chatty java application which I am going to run on a SUSE Enterprise server. The server is running on ESX and is very beefy hardware. There will be a few user connecting, but not much more than a handful.
I want to tun the server to run 3-4 java heaps about 4GB.
Where would I start tuning?
Which Kernel parms?
Anyone know some good linux tuning books? Or java tuning with OS kernel tuning in it?
