Subject Re: Comparing Tomcat Performance on Windows vs. Linux
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2006 21:48:13 GMT
Stupid question Remy but are you refering to the
proces per java thread issue that had effected Linux?
I am well behind the times so is this all resolved? I
am soon to set-up a Tomcat server, preferably on Linux
FC3 with a 2.6 kernal. Would you know whether this is
suitable for running Tomcat under a reasonable load?

Thanks alot
