It would be hard to identify your specific problem based on what you have

log files, specifically the 'catalina.out' file for startup and shutdown
errors. Typcially it takes tomcat 4-5 seconds to startup or shutdown on my
redhat 7.2 machine running java 1.4. Running a "tail -f <log.file>" will

Subject: tomcat startup problems on Linux box.

Hi All,

I am running Tomcat 4.0 on a Redhat 7.1 machine.
Everything is fine, except the startup/shutdown
scripts do not seem to work reliably.
I installed Tomcat from the RPM, so use the script
/etc/init.d/tomcat4 {shutdown|start}.
Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.
I can always restart the service with a reboot,
but don't want to have to do that.

Any ideas what could be going wrong?
