Subject Tomcat fails to service requests after period of time
Date Wed, 19 Oct 2005 07:50:26 GMT

I am using jboss 4,01, which is uses tomcat 5.  WE have a web
server(IIS) and use jk2 as the connection to the backend server(jboss
I have a web app mapped to a network drive to serve static pdf and html
files.  This uses tomcat because of authentication purposes(one of these
reasons is users can be ip authenticated which cannot be done
dynamically within IIS).

This is a snippet of the server.xml file

	    	    <Context docBase='G:/ContentLoad'
Where G:\ContentLoad  is the mapped SAN drive, and is around 50G in

With the above configuration, the application server over a period of
time (around 300,000 requests) stops accepting any requests for PDF
files.  The ajp connectors just hang.  Even if I browse locally(which
uses the HTTP connector), the browser just hangs trying to load the pdf

Is there a major configuration problem with mapped network drives for
web appp.  

Has anyone else had similar issues??
