Subject Re: Tomcat 6.0.35 -crossing maxThreads configured count
Date Mon, 23 Jan 2012 14:27:44 GMT

Hi Andre, 

Sorry, my mistake. 

you are right. i actually meant milliseconds. However i checked my configuration again and
here is what i have :  ( I have the http connector configured at 20000 ms. and the secured
one left at default 60000 ms)

<Executor name="tomcatThreadPool"

    <Connector enableLookups="false" executor="tomcatThreadPool"  port="http port"
               redirectPort="https port" address="ip address"/>

    <Connector enableLookups="false" executor="tomcatThreadPool"  port="http port"
protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="true"
               scheme="https" secure="true"
               clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" address="ip address"
               keystoreFile="path to cert" keystorePass="password" />

Please let me know if im doing any mistake or missing anything here.

this context, but that value seems to me so large as to be pretty useless for any practical
timeout I can imagine.

After checking the docs, that value is in milliseconds, not seconds :


The number of milliseconds this Connector will wait, after accepting a connection, for the
request URI line to be presented. Use a value of -1 to indicate no (i.e. infinite) timeout.
The default value is 60000 (i.e. 60 seconds) but note that the standard server.xml that ships
with Tomcat sets this to 20000 (i.e. 20 seconds).

That sounds more reasonable.
