Why is Apache Tomcat Monitoring Needed?

The Tomcat application server is one of the more popular server implementations for Java web applications. Implementing a "pure Java" HTTP web server, Apache Tomcat supports Java Servlets, Java Server Pages, and WebSockets, thereby making it a favorite choice for deploying and hosting highly transactional Java applications and services.

To ensure high application performance, it is essential to monitor the Tomcat application server, the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) it uses, the application components it hosts, and the infrastructure tiers supporting it. IT teams and developers need the capability to proactively detect performance problems before they impact end-users of the Java application.

What eG Enterprise’s
Apache Tomcat Monitoring Offers

Troubleshoot Faster with Deep Tomcat Insights

Get comprehensive view of all Tomcat performance metrics in one place

  • Monitor the processing of requests by each connector (response time, errors, workload, etc.)
  • Monitor sessions to each application hosted on Tomcat to identify which application is imposing the highest load
  • Track every servlet executing on Tomcat and measure requests, processing time, and errors
  • Assess whether the Tomcat server has been configured with enough threads to handle workloads
  • Isolate business transactions affected due to Tomcat performance
  • Catch out-of-memory exceptions and memory leaks in the JVM

Get Code-Level Visibility for Application Performance Optimization

eG Enterprise allows developers to easily identify Java code-level issues.

  • Automatically get alerted to slow Java application transactions
  • Analyze the transaction flow using distributed transaction tracing and determine where slowness is occurring (app server, database, remote calls)
  • Easily drill down to get Java code-level visibility

Answer Key Tomcat Performance Questions

  • Which of the Java business transactions are slow, stalled or having errors?Where is the response time slowdown: in the Java code,in the database queries, or in external web service calls?
  • How many transactions are handled by each Tomcat engine?
  • Is the workload balanced across all the Tomcat servers in the farm? Do you need more Tomcat Servers to handle the load?
  • Are Java Servlets executing within acceptable processing thresholds?
  • Is the web container configured correctly to handle the incoming workload?

Going Beyond Monitoring the Tomcat Web Container

eG Enterprise delivers total performance assurance for web applications powered by Java technology:

  • User experience monitoring: Using real user monitoring and synthetic transaction monitoring, you can identify user experience issues and slow transactions. Find out if the issue is with the browser, network, or server side.
  • Business transaction tracing: Trace slow transactions across the Java application architecture and isolate server-side issues causing transaction slowdown.
  • In-depth JVM monitoring: Comprehensively monitor every aspect of JVM performance, including CPU, heap and non-heap memory, threads, classes, garbage collection, and more
