No, the OP is unwilling to use a configuration that doesn't make any
sense: one single Tomcat should outperform two Tomcats on the same
physical server (unless you are talking about a 32-bit JVM that needs a
lot of memory).

I would rarely recommend that a client run parallel app servers on the
same machine for the same application for any purposes other than being
able to switch between versions of the same application (say, for
zero-downtime upgrade strategy). Since the OP didn't say that's what his
requirements were, there doesn't seem to be a compelling reason to use
this strategy.
