Subject RE: Too many threads

The threading implementation of the JVM depends on the OS to some
extent.  Linux uses native threads as opposed to green or p threads, so
you see more processes at the OS-level.  You can google search for any
of the above terms and you'll find a ton of references.

For the tomcat configuration reference regarding acceptCount,
minProcessors, and maxProcessors, all of which affect the number of
threads used by tomcat, see:
