Example message below from one of our scenarios.. you can see in the error below that we got a bea-101020 servlet failure due to out of memory condition in PermGen space... We solved it by using increasing MaxPermSize=256m in our config. It can be done either by modifying the setDomainEnv file in present in the /bin folder or by modifying the value in the startManagedWeblogic script present in /bin folder to impact a specific managed server or startWeblogic script if you want the change to be specific to the Admin server.
