Subject Re: How many connections can be made to Tomcat on Windows?
Date Tue, 14 Sep 2004 15:55:18 GMT
just out of curiousit, you're running Tomcat on windows server right?

in the even you're using windows professional, it is limited to 10
inbound connections, which is easy to overlook and forget.

I've easily gone over 1000req/sec for static files. For real pages
that hit the database, that's another story. Unless you're doing some
caching on the web tier, it's unlikely a 4CPU database server can
handle that many queries per second. The only way a webpage that gets
data from the database for every request to reach 1000 req/sec is if
the queries themselves take 50ms or less.

on a 4 cpu box
1000ms/50ms = 200 queries/second
200 queries/sec X 4 = 800.

Does that help?
