A few things that changed recently.
I updated to jdk 1.6.0_13
I added the following env variable for tomcat:
export JAVA_OPTS="-server -Xms4096m -Xmx8192m"
Wondering if anyone has insights... I can always put them back if we
think these are bad.
Regarding swordorbserver. FileMgr in SWORD limits number of open
connection. The default, which isn't changed in swordorbserver, is set
We could drop this if we think this is a problem. But I think our
server can handle anything we throw at it, so I'd rather up the kernel
limit, if this is our problem.
More comments welcome.
