The Tomcat Container Layer

The tests mapped to this layer monitor the health of the Tomcat container by reporting:

  • How well the Tomcat JVM uses the memory resources available to it
  • How effectively the Tomcat cache has been utilized;
  • Whether/not the Tomcat thread pools have been used optimally;
  • How efficiently each Tomcat connector processes the data traffic to it.
