Can you paste the server.xml file here ?
(Remove all comments, domain names and other confidential information if any)

To save time for everyone in the long run, can you also provide :
- the exact version of Tomcat used (7.y.z)
- the JVM version used

(You should be able to see all that by going to the Tomcat bin directory and executing

There may be a reason for the Tomcat threads disappearing : if the minimum you set in the
configuration is the above 5-6, and if the threads have nothing to do (Tomcat does not receive
any requests anymore, due to some network issue e.g.) then the threads would "naturally" die,
and Tomcat would not necessarily start new ones to replace them, since there is no need to.

Also maybe helpful : when the case occurs (Tomcat not responding), run the command :
netstat -pan --tcp
and check if anything unusual appears there (like hundreds of connections to the Tomcat HTTP
port, in some unexpected state).
