What happens when more requests reach to tomcat than it can handle?

Hi,

I know, there will be some limit to any application server or web container in handling the number of concurrency requests.
So, what happens when more requests reach to tomcat than the number it can process by creating threads? They are lost or tomcat holds them in a queue until the resources get freed to process the extra requests?


Thank you.

Each incoming, non-asynchronous request requires a thread for the duration of that request. If more simultaneous requests are received than can be handled by the currently available request processing threads, additional threads will be created up to the configured maximum (the value of the maxThreads attribute). If still more simultaneous requests are received, Tomcat will accept new connections until the current number of connections reaches maxConnections. Connections are queued inside the server socket created by the Connector until a thread becomes avaialble to process the connection. Once maxConnections has been reached the operating system will queue further connections. The size of the operating system provided connection queue may be controlled by the acceptCount attribute. If the operating system queue fills, further connection requests may be refused or may time out.
