starts and gets ready

	I am using apache 2.2 as load balancer in front of 2 tomcat
	I notice that when I restart a tomcat server, when a new request
comes to apache, it directs the request to the tomcat server before the
application goes up and the user has to wait until the server gets up.
	Probably when it sees that http port is up, apache routes the
	Is there a way to tell apache to wait until the application goes
up (something like make it poll a control page or tell apache to wait 60
seconds when a new server starts )?


I think you've described what's happening pretty well.. However, I had a
look at
and there are a few parameters that you can tweak that might do
something. Look especially at "ping" and "status".

If you do figure something out, please post back the solution as I (and
others, I'm sure) would be interested to know.
