Dear all,

I am stuck in a very critical situation. I would really appreciate your help.

I have a JSP application running on Tomcat 5.5.9 with MS SQL Server as a DB server. Tomcat unexpectedly shutdown when number of users increses beyond 50.

Pls. tell me how should i solve this problem. Will the problem will get solved if the no. of users are increased in server.xml or increase the seesion timeout value in server.xml

With regards,

Tomcat doesn't limit the number of users.
There is a max threads but with a default value of 75, you should be able to handle hundreds or thousands of users at a time.

It is more likely that your JDBC driver or the database itself is limiting connections.

Are you using connection pooling?

Are you explicitly closing your database connections immediately after using them? If not, there is a good chance that they're not getting closed and your database is refusing connections after the 50th hit.
