Subject Re: Tomcat 8 Session Timeout
Date Fri, 04 Sep 2015 10:14:11 GMT
Hi Chris - the servlet spec states "If the time out is 0 or less, the 
container ensures the default behavior of sessions is never to time out."

Currently the timeout value is set to 2 minutes.

However the problem is persisting - the environment is using Jersery 
Servlet 1.3 for REST.

If we look inside web service stats -

Longest session alive time: 183 s / Processing time: 625 ms
Longest session alive time: 207 s / Processing time: 232 ms

The current session timeout is set to 120 seconds, so neither of these 
above session times make any sense, unless a dependency is hanging?

What does the servlet specification say about the values used there?
Hint: your assumptions are already wrong.
