As a follow-up to David's reply, I'd like to be a little more specific.

This line of output tells you which thread (http-8085-Processor23), what
type of thread it is (daemon), it's priority, and then method it's
currently in (Object.wait).

This line confirms that the thread is in Object.wait().

The JVM knows that Object.wait is a special method that requires a
"monitor" (the object being waited for), and it tells you

This line tells you what the monitor is (the object being waited on).
It's the object with reference 0xe61981f0, which is a
org.apache.tomcat.util.threads.ThreadPool$ControlRunnable object. I'm
not expert on Tomcat internals, but I'm guessing that ControlRunnable is
related to request dispatching.

This thread is clearly waiting on a notification of a request coming
into the server. Therefore, it can be considered IDLE, and not doing
anything at all.

If you really do have multiple <Connectors>, and you are only using one
(which is likely), then the threads for the other 2 connectors will
always be idle.
