clocking Intel i7 720QM ( poor performance fixed )

Recently i was facing problems with performance of my Lenovo W510 laptop. I was able to fix it and here is what i discovered.

1) I was using a low power adapter rather than the higher powered one which came along with the laptop. This have effect on the performance so use a higher power power adapter.
2) In the power options on my Windows Seven OS i changed my power profile to one of Maximum performance.
3) Finally use a utility like ThrottleStop to boost the CPU .

Make sure to uncheck the BD PROCHOT check box.

Starting tomcat6: Error code 4

[root@vm-scim-dev logs]# service tomcat6 restart
Stopping tomcat6:                                          [  OK  ]
Starting tomcat6: Error code 4                             [FAILED]

I was able to solve this error by providing some disk space as the disk space was full causing this error.
