of a resource that would be short in a realserver but not an
otherwise identical standalone server.
nothing strange with `ulimit -a` ?
increasing as far as we have seen, no.
We are running a "weighted round robin" load balancer algoritm, and the
director will set weight 0 (= no traffic) on a backend once it has frozen
(not responding to the directors status requests). Then the number of active
connections sloooowly drops.
They shouldn't slowly drop.
All connections should be gone in the time the clients are
connected + FIN_WAIT. How long does a client hold a tomcat
connection? seconds, minutes, hours?
I haven't setup a tomcat server, but I assume the connection
time is comparable to connecting to a regular html/http
server, ie get your hit(s) and you're gone (seconds).
Where are you measuring the number of connections? with
ipvsadm on the director or with netstat on the realserver?
Netstat typically reports a normal number of connections (~ 100) in various
"Runnig out of ports" sounds interesting. It sure looks like we are running
out of something. How would one go about detecting if we are running out of
Remeber, if looks like we are running out of something which causes
applications to wait instead of bailing out with an error message. Would
running out of ports cause applications to wait?
actually you aren't going to run out of ports, you've got
the server end, which is going to have multiple processes
listening on port 80. The client can (in principle) run out

Well, no disk- or file-sharing. The Tomcats are communicating HTTP
session-replication data between backends. Our HTTP-sessions contain very
little data, so the traffic should not be that big.
it's the only thing different to operating as a standalone
server that you've mentioned.
Anyone out there having a good idea where to look for clues to what may
no, still just going through obvious checklists here
