Subject RE: Performance issue
Date Tue, 07 Sep 2004 08:16:17 GMT

First of all I use connection pooling (JSQLConnect) and put values in cache
(hashmaps) so constant data retrieved once and deliver many. Let give an
example of which pages this is happening:

search.jsp: this jsp has multiple dropdownboxes. The data will be retrieved
from the server in a Vector and this data is qua volume on both (the
development as production) server the same. That means that all the content
of the dropdownlists are the same. So I may expect that there is no
difference in volume?? Or do you ment something different with that?? On a
reload the data within the dropdownlists are retrieved from the servercache
(lookup data is stored in a HashMap). So I don't know that's the problem.
How do you solve this problem?? The problem now is that one applications
causes an error (i don't know what, since there is nothing within the log)
and tomcat restarts.

it's an interesting one and one that we found too between our dev 1 cpu,
w2k, 512mb ram, tomcat 5.0.19 and production 2 cpu, w2k, 1gb ram, tomcat
5.0.19. In both cases we use a content management system backend and sql

for us we found that the volume of content in our cms on the production box
was 10 times that of the development box and so this slowed the cms down
making it look like tomcat was taking its time. also the sql server load on
production is larger so database ops take longer.

you ought to consider whether any dependent backend systems like cms,
database, crm etc.. are used in a different way between dev and production.
i do not think your problem is tomcat.

cheers, ADC
