JVM Configuration

When it comes to troubleshooting CF servers, many jump to JVM configuration as the first and most important "tweak" to consider. As tempting as that may be, I (Charlie) will argue that it may be more fruitful to focus on the root cause of problems that may be stressing the JVM (and memory, etc.). Be sure to view the entire separate category on Problems and Solutions, with many other topics (and diagnostics) to consider.

That said, there are indeed some useful JVM configuration options to consider, not least of which updating the JVM due to bugs in the early 1.6 versions included in CF 8, 8.01, 9, and 9.01. See particularly Have you updated your #ColdFusion JVM to _24 yet? Important security fix for CF 8/9.
