Subject RE: Using Tomcat 5.5 as a standalone web server
Date Thu, 12 Jan 2006 10:55:59 GMT
Security is not a key issue for us, over and beyond observing good
general site security principles. Given that there is far from a
consensus opinion on this question, I am going to stick with Apache
2.0.46 / Tomcat 5.5.7 as an integrated solution, but do some testing on
Tomcat standalone as well to see how it performs.  I would love to go to
pure Tomcat, but I can't risk it on this particular site ... For now! I
have noted the caching solutions people have suggested - they may form
part of a future non-Apache solution if traffic continues to rise.

Thanks everyone!

Adam

Adam,
  
  I think I just posted a question on nearly this same topic.
  
  I found something called Pippo for static content and would be easier
to configure as it sits in Tomcat. 
  
  Do you have security considerations? Have you had to add modules for
securing content in Apache?

sound of that idea - videos tend to change rarely, and are prime
candidates for caching. Is anyone actually using this configuration?
Thanks.

There is quite an easy sollution. 

Run squid as you main webserver and as a web accelator in front of your
tomcat. From the squid config you can decide what your want cached and
what now. I don't understand why this is not done more often since its
A) a very easy sollution
B) does not loose any of the funtionality tomcat can offer you
C) allow to fine grain the load of tomcat completely

Only downsite, the squid cache in core memory gives of course the best
performance so as much memory as possible will help. On the other hand.
The HTML of much sites fits easily in 500MB core memory.

Regards, Wouter

Subject: Using Tomcat 5.5 as a standalone web server

Hello all,
 
I am running a reasonable sized site, on Linux Red Hat + Tomcat 5.5.7.
The site is serving mainly Flash movies and servlets with streaming
video through a commercial codec, plus a full HTML version of the site.
Currently, I have Tomcat 5.5.7 integrated with Apache 2.0.46, which was
(very) difficult to set up, and now I am looking to rebuild my server
into a better configuration, I want to simplify my admin by running
Tomcat on its own to serve all content. 
 
My question is this : does anyone have experience of running a 500 000 -
1 000 000 page impressions / month site, including  elements such as I
mention above, on Tomcat alone? I want to avoid the web server
integration if Tomcat is up to it, but I would love to hear if anyone
else has been successful with Tomcat standalone before I do?
 
Many thanks!
 
Adam
