Subject tomcat close_wait state and proxy error when connecting to my web application
Date Tue, 12 May 2009 21:26:03 GMT


I have apache web server running on one box as a proxy server
tomcat running on another box.

The apache server connects to application server (tomcat) via proxy passthru
parameter. The server running tomcat was recently rebooted.  When it came
back up I started tomcat but I can no longer connect to my web application
over http.  I'm getting a proxy error in my browser window: error reading
from the remote server.  The apache log shows the same message.

On the server running tomcat, netstat -a shows the port running tomcat
changes to a state of close_wait.

however, if I telnet to the port (8980) from the server running apache I can
connect and the port shows a state of established.

Any ideas as to why I can no longer reach my web application?
Whats causing this close_wait state?
