    Tomcat - java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space

    When you access .jsp page then some times it shows the following error on the page.

    ============================
    HTTP Status 500 -

    type Exception report

    message

    description The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

    exception

    javax.servlet.ServletException: Servlet execution threw an exception

    root cause

    java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space

    note The full stack trace of the root cause is available in the Apache Tomcat/5.5.25 logs.
    Apache Tomcat/5.5.25
    ============================
    Solution is :

    It needs to increase the memory by making changes in catalina.sh file.

    Follow the following steps :

    1) vi /usr/local/jakarta/tomcat/bin/catalina.sh

    2) Add following line into the catalina.sh file.

    JAVA_OPTS="-Djava.awt.headless=true -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -server -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -XX:NewSize=256m -XX:MaxNewSize=256m -XX:PermSize=256m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -XX:+DisableExplicitGC"

    Partial example of catalina.sh file

    ===========================================
    # JSSE_HOME (Optional) May point at your Java Secure Sockets Extension
    # (JSSE) installation, whose JAR files will be added to the
    # system class path used to start Tomcat.
    #
    # CATALINA_PID (Optional) Path of the file which should contains the pid
    # of catalina startup java process, when start (fork) is used
    #
    # $Id: catalina.sh 609438 2008-01-06 22:14:28Z markt $
    # -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    JAVA_OPTS="-Djava.awt.headless=true -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -server -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -XX:NewSize=256m -XX:MaxNewSize=256m -XX:PermSize=256m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -XX:+DisableExplicitGC"


    # OS specific support. $var _must_ be set to either true or false.
    cygwin=false
    os400=false
    darwin=false

    ========================================
    Save and exit
    Then restart the tomcat

    Yep, I've seen this error popping too many times when working with Java issues.. I'd need to search over Google to pass through it :wink: Thank you for posting it here Ronnie, it'd be helpful for the others too...
