Subject Re: Strange wait time in my application - Tomcat 7.0.67
Date Mon, 03 Oct 2016 10:19:03 GMT
I already use Yourkit but it doesn't seems a load problem.

The delay is not spread over all operaions but concentred in only one or two and allways takes
4 secs more than the normal operation  time.

Could You suggest how to use Yourkit in this schenario ?
