java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space + JBoss AS in Windows

Roberto Requena Newbie



     I need some help setting up a JBoss Aplication for production as is giving me memory problems.


The server configuration is as follows:


OS: Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition (Service Pack 2)

CPU: Pentium (R) Dua-Core CPU E5200@2.50GHz 2.50GHz

Memory: 1.96 GB of RAM.

JAVA: java version "1.6.0_24" Java (TM) SE Runtime Environment (build1.6.0_24-b07)

Application Server: JBoss 5.1.0.GA


My application is developed with:


JSF 1.2

Rich Faces 3.3.3 Final


EJB 3.0



I tried to make most of my Backing Beam are in request scope.


But when more than one user is connected to the application I get the following error:


java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space


and tried to set the memory of the VM, but do not know what values ​​to putexactly the amount of server memory. Nor is that components of jboss I have to uninstall to improve performance.


If you have any suggestions they are truly GRATEFUL.


Thanks again and excuse me for my Inglish
