Subject Tomcat 4.1.30 crashing on production site - need help
Date Mon, 07 Mar 2005 16:20:07 GMT
Hi All,

For the past couple of months we have been facing a peculiar problem
on our production environment. And we have been unable to resolve this
issue so far.

We have an application hosted on Tomcat 4.1.30 and using JDK1.4.2_06.
We also have an Apache WS - (think it is v2.0.2). Everyday approx
after every 24 hours of uptime the website slows down and hangs... On
checking the tomcat logs, we see an OutOfMemoryException.

Restarting Tomcat was one way to momentarily fix the issue and have
the site up - but due to Apache forked processes we are not able to
restart Tomcat too. Even if could our Tomcat takes about 30-40 mins to
load/startup due to some user data loading on startup.

So that leaves the only option of killing certain threads/processes
and then starting Tomcat. which works fine - only we have been doing
this every night for the past more than a month.

We also got a thread dump just to check what is going on.. and I have
pasted that info herewith. Sun has suggested that we install all
patches to the JDK.

I just wanted to find out if anyone had faced a similar issue and if
there was something they did that fixed the issue. Was Tomcat the
culprit?? We will go ahead and install the patches very soon - but
wanted to be ready in case that didnt fix the issue - did anyone
experience an improvement once the patches were installed??
Here is the Exception Trace:
