When it is in non-responding state.
Is there anything in the Apache HTTPD logs as well?

Regarding your configuration:
- What connector implementation you are using? (That will be in the
logs when Tomcat starts). Do you use Tomcat-Native aka APR
(bin/tcnative-1.dll) ?

- If you have an HTTP connector besides AJP one, does Tomcat responds
if you try to connect to it?

That is up to you to decide. The more people use Tomcat 7, the merrier it is.

Tomcat 7 releases come more frequently (once a month),  and changes
between releases tend to be more risky, but it has better testsuite
than Tomcat 6.

There was some connector refactoring recently in Tomcat 7, to reduce
duplicate code and simplify further development and maintenance. Next
release will be 7.0.19.

Regarding your issue, I do not think that the upgrade will change
anything in diagnosing the issue.

There should be other reasons for upgrading, like parallel deployment,
or using Sevlet 3.0 features in applications that you will deploy on
the same server later.
