Improving performance of Jira and Confluence

Hi, I was wondering if there are any general performance improvement guides out there for Jira.

Our page load times for Jira are around 7-9 seconds and 8-10 for confluence.

For Jira we are using a dedicated machine.

We have a 2 processor Intel 2.4 ghz VM with 8 GB of Ram.

Only Jira is installed as a standalone tomcat app.

We have 20 projects and some with as many as 500-700 issues so not very large.

Jira uses the same SQL server as Bamboo, Crowd and Confluence.

Our Java memory settings are -XX:MaxPermSize=384m -Xms256m -Xmx768m but all the memory graphs show 35-50 percent free.

The SQL server is also a virtual machine with 2 dual core processors 2.4 ghz and 16gb of ram.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

I was told that for 8GB of RAM that I should have the values in set to at least -Xms1024m -Xmx1024m.  ALso have you tried to go to the caching analizer tool?
