Subject RE: Weekly restart of Tomcat service
Date Wed, 06 May 2009 20:52:31 GMT

If we don't restart, the users cannot access the application.
It is java based (I think) and they blame it on the SQL server (of
course) which is an entirely different server.
I am looking in the tomcat log files from days past.
But I'm not sure which log files contain the errors I should be looking
Is it the catalina files or the stderr files?

What happens if you /don't/ restart? Aren't there log messages that
would be enough to convince them there's a problem?

Here's one from lambdaprobe running on my production server (on
Tomcat 6.0.x) -- "UP for 328 days 19 hours 34 minutes"

One example of *not* requiring weekly restarts  :-)
