Subject Re: [users@httpd] http-tomcat - AJP ilink receive failed - 500/503 errors
Date Fri, 17 Sep 2010 18:14:08 GMT

Thanks for the reply Martin.

Telnet works, but it's difficult to say as sometimes AJP also works. I don't need to restart
any of the services to resolve this problem. It starts working back again on it's own after
few seconds/minutes for future requests. It's random error (until the real trigger is found).

Hi,

you should try to telnet tomcat server from web server.

telnet <host> <port>

If the telnet is successful, you need to check configuration of mod_proxy_ajp. If the telnet
will be not successful, you have network problem.

Hi,

I have a Apache http server and a Tomcat server configured using AJP connector (mod_proxy_ajp).
The http server serves HTML/PHP pages and also proxies Java webapp requests to back-end Tomcat
server.
System config:
* Both servers are running as Virtual Machines
* CentOS 5.4
* Apache Tomcat 6.0.26 and Sun JDK 1.6
* Apache http: 2.2.3 (it's old, but that's what comes with default CentOS repo)

We are getting HTTP 500/503 errors quite frequently, but they appear to be random in nature
and hence difficult to debug. I have tried increasing following config parameters, but it
didn't help:
* On http server: max and smax connections in proxy_ajp.conf
* On Tomcat server: maxThreads and maxSpareThreads in Tomcat's server.xml

Following logs were seen on both sides:
== Apache http server ==
* In browser: 500/503 - internal server error.
* In Apache logs at debug mode - same logs for 500 and 503 error:

* tcpdump on Apache http server: Shows a packet going out to Tomcat server

The request doen't seem to reach Tomcat at all. I have checked syslog (/var/log/messages),
but I don't see any dropped packet logs as well.

Anyone else had this issues before? Any pointers on how to debugs this would be really helpful.

Thanks,
Shantanu Pavgi.
