I recommend using Apache 2 with mod_jk 1.2 to serve static content in front
of Tomcat.   You can then configure mod_jk to do tomcat request logging which
includes things like request latency in ms.  There are perl scripts which come
with the mod_jk 1.2 source distribution which can be used to analyze the mod_jk log.
With Apache in front you can also use tools like analog to generate web statistics
from the apache logs.

For general Tomcat peformance issues there was a session at ApacheCon on this.
