Performance and scalability: Tomcat VS Weblogic

  1. Tomcat VS Weblogic (6 messages)

    Hi All,

    Currently I am using Apache 2.044, Mod_jk2 and Tomcat4.1.24. Some time getting SocketException: Connection reset by peer: and getting Error Code 500 (Internal Server Exception). If I restart the Tomcat it works fine for some time.

    Is migrating to WebLogic 8.1 will help?

    Your responses will be greatly apreciated.

    Regards,

    Probably going to Weblogic will help.

    I am a big fan of Tomcat, but it has issues, especially under load.

    Before you make the switch, though, dig through your server logs and try to figure out what is really happenning. The problem could be because of an application bug, like a memory leak. In that case, switching to Weblogic won't fix the problem.

    The simplest thing to do is to monitor memory usage using your OS. If the memory keeps going up, you have a leak somewhere.

    To actually identify the leak, you probably need some profiling tool. I don't know of any open source tools in this area, so you may need to go with a commercial product.

    You can check the log file of tomcat to see what happened.

    Thank you very much for reply.

    I have checked the tomcat log file. All it has is java.net.SocketException and every one says that, it is common with Tomcat when ever user clicks on stop or reload button.

    Application works fine for month with out restarting tomcat. Some times I don't understand issues "while communicating to Apache" or "not responding to all user requsts".

    Thanks and Regards,

    Ive also seen that this happens when your application has images that it is trying to load. Though this error doesnt seem to effect application functionality.
