I'm a professional 'full-stack' developer, especially interested in web applications, Java development and Linux based operating systems.

I contribute towards a small number of Open Source projects, balancing out my karma. :D

Thanks, see my answer below. :)

Unless you're having issues with slow heap memory allocation, it's often better to let the JVM decide its own Xms value.

If he sets the Xmx anywhere near 1.5 GiB (especially with Apache HTTPD running) he's likely to run the process into swap and get issues with slow GC.

What are the specs of your system and what percentage of resources would you like to be available to Tomcat (is the server solely running Tomcat or multiple services)?

comment Static route for entire octet or by host name?
@womble Thank you, your answer works for me. :)

comment Static route for entire octet or by host name?
@MarkM My point was that the M$ doc says you can specify a host name, but womble's answer says you can't.

comment Static route for entire octet or by host name?
I'm trying to test an app (not mine) in an environment with a proxy - the app doesn't support them. All the other remote calls work with this approach because their IP addresses remain static. If there's a better approach to doing a 'quick test', I'd be grateful of any suggestion. :)

After lookup, the remote server's IP address often changes - so a single static route isn't suitable.

Can anyone explain the downvote? I don't understand what is wrong with my question?

Microsoft's docs (the link in the question) states: "Destination - Specifies either an IP address or host name for the network or host."?

comment Java: Tomcat slow serving static files?
@mindas: That's not really the issue here, the normal throughput of Tomcat is more than acceptable. I'm trying to ascertain why the occasional piece of content takes and extremely long time.

comment Java: Tomcat slow serving static files?
All the whitepapers I've read indicate that when on a single server, the combination is slower. In any case, Tomcat is supposed to cache small files - the data start-time seen in the example (90+ seconds) is more than just HTTP throughput, surely?
