You would be better off to use a load balancer in front of a cluster of
Tomcat servers. It gives you very good scalability, with good fault

Subject: Tomcat scalability

1. For a project my company is working on we have transactions
requirements of 1600 transactions per second.  The transactions consists
of processing a servlet in Tomcat, doing a database call and then
displaying the results to the user so the effective number of transactions
Tomcat has to process is actually greater than 1600.

Can Tomcat cope with 1600 requests in a second(a 4 processor Sunfire
machine will be used)?

Based upon our current application architecture(our java application has
tomcat running inside it), 1600 request per second means we may have
1600 threads open simultaneously.

2. From one article I read at linux journal, Tomcat 3 didn't scale very
well with multiple processors because of JVM issues.
