Metacat got "java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space" after new geoserver update
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:
Specifically, the permgen space as a JVM option:
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.
