Yes Chris, i am pretty sure that nobody is accessing the application.

The moment i start my Tomcat the "Request Count " reaches values of 400+ within few seconds,
this value is getting incremented by 6 everytime (eg: 6,12,18,24,30)

Whereas my AJP Connector "Request Count"  is showing the correct numbers depending  on the
requests which all are redirected from APache.

As of now i have not configured the "AccessLogValve" , but will try out this option definitely

Please suggest

Sorry, this list strips attachments. Please copy/paste the numbers
into a followup post.

Are you sure nobody is accessing the application? Do you have an
AccessLogValve (or Filter) enabled?

If you want to know which requests are taking a long time, configure
(or re-configure) an AccessLogValve to include the total time for the
request. Then sort your log file by response-time and start at the
longest response to see what's going on.

Psi Probe likely uses JMX (or maybe gets the data directly from Tomcat
in the same way that the JMX beans get their data), so all that same
data is available the JMX. Attach to Tomcat using jconsole, jvisualvm,
etc. and poke around: there's a lot of good information in there.
