Oracle BTM provides with its products an Apache Tomcat servlet container. Release 6.0 and higher comes with Tomcat 5.5.

Depending on your use of BTM products, you might need to tune the Tomcat container in which they run. For example, the performance of an agent that handles a very high rate of client traffic usually benefits greatly from increased container resources.

Signs that an agent or other component requires more container resources include but are not limited to:

HttpConnector [8080] No processor available, rejecting this connection.

To address these issues, the two resources that require tuning are the number of threads that process requests and the amount of available memory, i.e., Java heap size. The former is controlled by Tomcat itself, whereas the latter is controlled by the underlying Java Virtual Machine (JVM).
