C.1.1 Configuring Tomcat Parameters

The parameters for the Tomcat hosting system that supports MySQL Enterprise Service Manager and MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface can have an affect on the performance of the system.

The default settings for Java for Tomcat are as follows:

DescriptionParameterDefault Value
Initial heap size-Xms768MB
Maximum heap size-Xmx768MB
Java stack size-Xss128MB

You can change these parameters to higher values, by editing the JAVA_OPTS setting within the corresponding platform script.

On all platforms, upgrading the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager service using the above methods should preserve any changes to JAVA_OPTS.

If you are running the MySQL repository and the Tomcat service on the same machine, take the memory allocated to MySQL into consideration when setting these values.
