Subject RE: maxProcessors vs maxThreads
Date Mon, 19 Jan 2004 20:58:42 GMT

thanks yoav, i noticed that but then does that mean that there is no
method to specify max threads/processors for the coyote ajp connector?
that sounds a bit strange....

how does tomcat behave with the ajp connector? does it indefinitely spawn
threads to handle requests until it bombs out of memory? or is there
behaviour as specified by the acceptcount/max processors for the http
connector buried in the code of the ajp connector that can't be modified?

thanks in advance.
