Are you asking what a heap is ? or just what the values relate to ?

I use Fop from Cocoon and for my 600k input file C2 uses up over 300Mb 
some times. When I run the same XSL style sheets from a simple (perl) 
driver script, memory usage does not exceed 50Mb.

My C2 machine is a Mandrake 8.0 K6-2 500MHz with 512Mb real memory.
When I was running Cocoon 2.0 with only 256Mb the box died on older 
versions of the stylesheets. I will move to servlets from C2 only if 
this does not get better. 

Anyone else feel that
