Tomcat specific question. Adding this topic to the Tomcat forum.

Tomcat uses thread pools, and according to what I read superficially in the documentation, each Connector object has its own thread pool. Pools are constructed with a fixed initial size, and (in many cases), allowed to grow and shrink to predefined limits.

I would expect that the internal Tomcat monitoring mechanisms (such as jmx) can be used to track the pool sizes over time.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
