Tomcat Processes

Is it possible to increase the number of process handled by Tomcat. I need to do this because the server sometimes gives "Inernal server Error 500". On one of the sites, I read that the error could occur as the number of process that can be handled by Tomcat may have been exceeded.

The 500 Internal Server Error is a very general message that means something has gone wrong on the web site's server but the server could not be more specific on what the exact problem is. You should check the log files to get more details about this error.

I agree with Mr. Ver. Here's a topic that may help. FYI, I found it by googling tomcat increase threads.

I strongly recommend using the Tomcat Management App to monitor Thread and memory useage. You may be running out of Threads due to request Threads getting stuck in loops or endlessly waiting.


(Oh good grief, another ancient Thread - I really need to remember to look at message dates.)
I agree. Here's the link:
