Welcome to this hands-on lab, where we will obtain a heap dump of a running Tomcat instance, and also enable the start-up option to create a heap dump on an Out of memory error.

We are using Apache's Tomcat, a Java-based application platform built around deploying and managing Java Web Applications. The server provided in this lab environment is running Red Hat Enterprise 8 and has Tomcat 9 pre-installed for you, available on port 8080.

You will log into the server and perform the associated tasks.
