You configured 5 connector threads that not necessarily match OS threads 
(or whatever you saw). Check with Tomcat's manager application how many 
connector threads you really have.

to SSL port?
That's used, if one of your webapps has a security constraint (can be 
done in the web.xml) saying that this app (or some of its resources) may 
only be accessed using https. In that case, if Tomcat receives a http 
request it will automatically redirect the browser to the same resource, 
but using https scheme and using the mentioned redirect ports. Thus you 
won't have to do ugly port number hardcoding into your app (or other 
strange approaches), if you need to support https.
