Updated by Sebastien Jacquot about 5 years ago

Occurs sometimes :
- at startup
- when using TIGERSearch
- when computing Index or Lexicon Lexion of Partition with a lot of parts
- at TBX initialization when relaunching the war after a previously Java Heap Space Exception

Set more Java memory when launching Tomcat :
edit /etc/init.d/tomcat6

# Escape any double quotes in the value of JAVA_OPTS

JAVA_OPTS="-Djava.awt.headless=true -Xms512m -Xmx4096m -XX:PermSize=256m -XX:MaxPermSize=1024m"

h3. Hypothesis 1

Some Java object are not garbaged when the TXM web app is reloaded.
[insert here the tomcat startup logs warning about the not garbaged objects

This is a known bug, one simple solution is :
- to not reload tomcat apps, but restart tomcat
- to isolate the webapps
This solution is used by the ENS tomcat VMs.

h3. Solution 1

- Be able to diagnose what causes the heap exception
- fix the heap causes
