We probably should increase the RAM the VM gets if its OOM'ing a lot or
see if you can tune the java processes running to use less ram (if its
possible). Are you guys graphing the VM's memory usage at all using munin?
We could just add it to our munin graphing if you don't. That will help us
out quite a bit on determining how much ram you need.
