...sorry, I wasn't very clear. I have to monitor a (huge) three tiers application which uses
a servlet/jsp container. The aim is to help administrators to tune the application (i.e. to
set the best number of threads in the pool), and to notice them when it seems this application
reaches its limits (when requests are delayed or dropped).
Before, the container used was "JRun" and it had a function which allowed us to know the number
of listening threads/buzy threads, the number of received calls, the number of delayed and
dropped requests. Now, "they" want to use Tomcat, so I have to find a way to have the same
what do you mean by "filter", is it something specific to Tomcat 4.x ? anyway, they don't
want to use Tomcat 4 but Tomcat 3.2... 
Thank you very much for yor kind help, I'm really lost :(
