That might be the reason for trouble. If things start to get slow, the 
web server gets filled by all thenew requests still coming in without 
answering fast enough the existing ones. People often try to work around 
this by increasing the number of threads available for processing the 
requests, but if the backend is stuck or too slow, this will not help 
and instead also trash the frontend.

You should measure how many connections you need during peak hours 
without performance problems, and then add some percentage depending on 
your growth rate etc. Finally you need to make sure, that your web 
server itself uses at least as many threads, as you configured as the 
pool size.

For Apache with mod_jk we can automatically detect the number of threads 
and by default size our pool to the same number. For IIS you have to 
size the pool yourself (or live with the big default of 250).
