OS = Slackware 9.0
I installed jboss-tomcat with NO change in any of
the configuration files. It appears to start ok, and
"http://:8080/jmx-console" gives a list
of modules. However, when I invoke "ps-aux", the
listing shows 53 instances of jboss!? This does not
seem proper. If this is not the intended behavior,
how can I start jboss and get just 1, or the correct
number, of processes?
There are 53 threads in one jboss instance.
This is a known problem with the way the
linux process table is layed out. It fools the ps
You will note all 53 threads use the same amount
of memory (it is really the same shared memory).
