Tomcat can use a fair amount of memory by default; it would be nice if defaults were documented, and the fact that the settings can be configured in

(eg using 
JAVA_OPTS="-Xmx768M -Xms768M -Xss128k -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError 

Some customers have had issues with the tomcat memory usage, and this would be a good heads-up as well as allowing them to configure this appropriately for their needs.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
update documentation regarding tomcat memory usage and how to configure it

I've added a note to the 2.1 and 2.2 docs about setting these values.
