Subject Re: Tomcat stops responding due to too many requests - using Jackrabbit
Date Thu, 12 Nov 2009 09:02:06 GMT

please try to get a thread dump from the jvm when tomcat does not
respond. using suns jdk 6 you can use the following tools:

jps (will give you the ids of your java processes)
jstack <pid> (gives you the thread dump)

that will help to analyze what causes the slow down.
