Subject RE: Delay in invoking first servlet
Date Tue, 30 Jan 2001 16:53:12 GMT

I'm not sure, but I've heard on the list that there is an expensive random
number seeding process that occurs on the first access to the server. This
could be what you are seeing. To make this less obtrusive, you could create
a load-on-startup servlet which makes a request to your server so that this
delay is incurred automatically and not by the first human user.

Subject: Delay in invoking first servlet

I've got tomcat running with apache, and everything's working fine,
but when I invoke the first servlet from a browser, I get a 60-80
second delay.  Everything after that is fast -- it's just that first
servlet that's showing the delay.  It doesn't matter which servlet
I use, or whether I <load-on-startup> -- it still happens.  Anyone
know what's going on, or how to fix it?
