Subject tomcat - thread per connection model
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2003 19:16:43 GMT
Hi - Since tomcat implements a thread per connection
model (as per the spec), would it be open to a DoS
attack if it does not have an Apache server in front
of it ? ie keep all threads busy servicing slow
requests and valid users can't get in. 

Assuming there is no apache server in front of tomcat
and tomcat is serving everything, what's a reasonable
connection timeout value? I know this is application
specific but it would be interesting to hear about
this. The goal obviously is to serve as many users as
possible without having to create too many threads. 

Thanks in advance
