The tomcat probe is generating critical alarms similar to the following:

The probe internal used memory 169792KB (136%) is >= 100.0% of 124000KB



tomcat (seen in all versions)



Probe is running out of java memory.



Deactivate the probe, then use the Raw Configure GUI to add a new <java_options> section under the top-level <properties> section:

java_home = .....
1 = -Xmx256m

Also, change the <janitor> memorylimit to match the -Xmx size, noting that memory limit is in KB. So, in this case change memorylimit to 256000.

Activate the probe.


Additional Information:

Set the -Xmx to a value which is higher than the number reported in the alarm.
