Java process using high CPU in Solaris  RSS feed

Hi,

We have around 250+ java applications running on the solaris box. But, we could see most of the CPU utilization is being utilized by the Java applications which are running on "JDK 1.7" version.
Although every application will be having it's own memory, but do we have any limitation that single JDK can handle maximum of X number of applications?

Any suggestions would be helpful on this. Please let me know if i need to provide any more details.

Apologies if there are any mistakes in my post as this is my firs post in the Coderanch.

Given that we know nothing about the applications running on your server, how are we to know what the problems are with them. If there are problems at all.

Normally each Java application would run in its own JVM. However it's possible that whoever set up your server did something to make applications share a JVM in some way -- you didn't mention this so probably not.

And your problem statement is unclear; all we know is that most of the CPU is being used by Java 7 applications. This would be perfectly normal if there were 250 Java 7 applications and only three Java 6 applications, let's say. Like Tim says, we don't even know if there is a problem.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
