    Help!  Too many Linux JBoss processes being created...

    trackingroi.com Newbie

      We've recently moved from Windows to Linux (Red Hat 9) with JBoss. We are currently experiencing a problem with the number of JBoss processes that are being created. We've reduced the number of threads to 5 as a test, but JBoss is still creating > 50 processes even without any clients connecting.

      How can we limit / fix the max number of processes that are spawned? I'm assuming that the output of ps -auxf is a list of processes not threads and that the linux processes are much heavier than a thread would be. I could be wrong :)

      Thank you so much for any guidance you can provide.

      Here is the jboss part of ps -auxf
