I'm doing Memory management analysis for my Java web application,
Before starting my tomcat the free memory was around 595 MB, Once I started the server the free memory goes to 151 MB. When I took the Heap dump, the objects were occupying 262 MB.
So will tomcat alone take remaining 181 MB?
Another question is, I ran Load Test with 500 Users. The free memory goes to 8MB, When I took heap dump here, It was around 265MB. So free space 151 MB is reduced to 8MB, What could be reason
