Subject RE: Tomcat causes Apache to hang. Any ideas?
Date Thu, 26 Aug 2004 18:26:42 GMT

Just a couple of things ;)

And yet you said Tomcat standalone wasn't an option for this
installation?  Too bad.  You can do much of mod_rewrite with the
balancer app, you can do much of .htaccess with Servlet security
constraints, and if Tomcat already handles all the requests than you're
losing performance by adding Apache and the connector layer.

How did you pick these three threads?

The three threads in your trace are waiting on different objects.  They
don't appear to be locked with each other.  It is normal and expected
that some thread will be waiting when you do a thread trace like this:
it's extremely unlikely all threads will be working when you do the
trace ;)

The next step would be to try your app on a different platform, IMHO, to
try and tell if this is indeed an RHEL-related problem or something
