It means mod-jk detected a communication error when trying to interact 
with Tomcat. Like it couldn't open a connection, it didn't get the 
answer, ... The exact types of detected errors depend on your mod_jk 
configuration. How to diagnose? Look at the mod_jk error log. Whenever a 
worker is put into error state, there will be at least one log message 
of type "[error]" in the mod-jk log. If you increase your JkLogLevel to 
info, the info log lines around the error line will contain more hints 
about the root cause, info level messages without an accompanying error 
message are harmless.

If you are going to post part of your log file, please also do provide 
your mod_jk configuration and version information.
