Subject Does tomcat support multicores
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2008 15:54:57 GMT
Os - WinXP

CPU - Intel Quad Core

Hi I'm running a tomcat server, and would like to know if Tomcat can
make use of multiple cores? When I max the server out, all 4 cores see
little usage however the java process never uses more than 25%.

So this makes me believe that Tomcat does not make use of a multicore

Would I benefit from running more than one instance and setup load
bearing between the two?
