Check the server.xml to validate the heapsize.  To view the server.xml file goto the following location:

1.  Verify the Initial heap size and Maximum heap sizes are valid.  By default we set both values to 6144.
2.  Verify the Generic JVM arguments are as follow:
    -Xmn768m -Xgcpolicy:gencon -Xcompressedrefs
