I have checked directly the slow query log to pinpoint the real queries. 
I found many subqueries, which I believe is not a good practice, am I 
right? Many queries take around 2 seconds and I found two queries that 
took 16 seconds and 64 seconds to run (with many subqueries nested).

Is there any way I can log if any query is causing any trouble in the 
Tomcat resources?

Not much.

Ok, thanks for the hint.
