Subject RE: Tomcat dies suddenly
Date Fri, 12 Feb 2010 15:31:49 GMT
I've been following this thread with interest, but haven't weighed in since I'm doing much
development these days.  I have to say that I'm agreeing with Chuck and Chris that it is a
resource issue - especially since it doesn't appear to be a problem unless under load.  Also,
the OOP mentioned that it doesn't seem to occur if only the production app is being hit. 
It takes someone using one of the other copies first to generate the problem.
So the questions occur:

1) Are you absolutely positive that there is no code that could be calling exit()?
2) Are you sharing jar files or classes between the apps?  If so, place a separate copy in
the WEB-INF/lib directory of each webapp, and remove them from the "shared" location, to insure
that you're not having an issue with one app stomping on another.  The combined load on a
resource in a shared class could be overloading some built-in limit, and that class could
be causing the fail without logging an error, or you're not catching the error to log it.
3) You have the disk space, try turning on "debug level" in all your logging utilities and
see what the apps were last doing.
