Hi,
We are developing a site similar to that of you tube...i.e the users can upload the videos and view the videos and they can post comments,send messages. we deployed our application in Tomcat 5.5.17. Until now the traffic for the site is limited. But we are planning to enhance the application and take it to a level where it can handle around 20000+ users. So will tomcat be able to support the load. The database that we are using is mysql 5.0. The application is developed in Flex2(for front end) and java. Also as per the present situation the video content serving will be taken care of by tomcat in one system and the data content serving will be taken care of by tomcat in another system. Please advise me.
Thanks

I think Tomcat is the least of your worries. Can your internet connection handle the peak load? Can your hardware? Have you configured your OS to allow Tomcat and your application open enough sockets/files/database connections to support the peak load? Have you done load testing under realistic conditions? Have you profiled your application while load testing so you can clean up any bottlenecks?
