fast it goes.

Emphasis : *your app* "ematrix".
Forget Tomcat per se, and try to figure out why *your app* is taking so long to start.
- maybe it is writing megabytes of data to this "trace file" that is mentioned
- maybe it is doing a DNS lookup of some host address, and your DNS is not properly 
configured, so it times out after a (long) while
- maybe it is using HTTPS, and is waiting for enough entropy
- maybe it must parse some huge XML data file, and does not have enough memory, so it is 
swapping in and out, or doing plenty of GC's
- etc..
