Tomcat 5.0 Memory Leak

Asked by: Mike Cherichetti 513 views Software

We’ve recently become aware of a memory leak in Tomcat 5.0:

http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=33368

If you’ve been having problems with Tomcat slowing down over time or freezing to the point where it needs to be restarted periodically, please contact us (http://www.renegadeinternet.com/support.html) for help with patching Tomcat 5.0 or upgrading to Tomcat 5.5 as it does not contain this bug.
