Subject RE: Perf Issue: HttpClient.executeMethod takes more time if there are more number of threads in the process
Date Wed, 13 Jul 2005 08:41:21 GMT
Hi,

I would think that is because Tomcat's max threads by default is usually around 75. I you
fire 10 at it then they all get serviced immediately. 

If you send 1000, all 75 get taken up, meaning a queue forms for the 1000-75 remaining threads
until Tomcat has spare threads for them.
