Description

Today, I updated my metacat source tree to get the changes on the geoserver part.

After installing the new Metacat, the catalina.out was very easy (it happened 4 times in one hour) to get the message even I didn't have many activities on the Metacat:

java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space

Before this updating, I hadn't seen the error message for a long time.

GeoServer recommends increasing your container's default settings:
http://docs.geoserver.org/stable/en/user/production/container.html

Specifically, the permgen space as a JVM option:
-XX:MaxPermSize=128m

I get these messages periodically when the /geoserver context reloads (after updating the geoserver configuration information). Hopefully they will go away with the increased memory settings.

Not sure if there is an action here. Maybe add this information to the Metacat documentation/faq?
