Subject Re: Tomcat as NT service going down after 2 months ???
Date Fri, 22 Feb 2002 08:30:19 GMT
Sounds like the symptoms of a VM crash, not Tomcat per se.  The 3.2.3 
box I run, up until a very recent SQL upgrade, used to go down every 
Sunday night in the wee hours.  No logs, or so I thought, until I 
noticed them in the tomcat/bin directory of all places!  You may want to 
look there just in case.  Seems a native call was generating a memory 
exception outside of the VM and the VM was shutting down to protect 
itself, so to speak.  (Specifically it was a close() call on a db 
connection, and something on the SQL side was making the driver go 
wonky, as if the connection was removed from the SQL side but the driver 
was never informed of the fact.)  So, ask them what changed on the SAP 
side too!  Good luck.
