The notes about Tomcat from the IDPv3 documentation will apply to
IDPv4 as well (though some of the suggestions are no longer
needed/supported with newer Java releases, e.g. -XX:MaxPermSize):

Other than that I provide somewhat opinionated, unofficial 3rd-party
setup documentation[1] for the IDP that's still using Tomcat 10.
That's specific to Debian 10 (and equally apply to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
w/o changes) in order to minimise my support burden. (I might update
that to Debian 11 once I find the time.)
Those are for using (only) Tomcat as TLS webserver.
