We are running an intranet application using JSP/Java and Tomcat Server. We are getting the following error.

Mar 12, 2007 8:02:48 AM org.apache.tomcat.util.threads.ThreadPool$ControlRunnable run
SEVERE: Caught exception (java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: unable to create new native thread) executing, terminating thread

Particularly we are getting this error when the Current Thread equals the Busy thread count in manager. And when it reaches the max thread, the server crashes. We even tried to increase size of the heap and also thread size. We could not identify why the server is crashing.

Connection Pool settings:
Maximum active connections: 10
Max idle connection : 4

Thread Settings

Max threads : 53
Min spare threads : 5
Max spare threads : 15

Tomcat is running on HP-UX server. It supports only 64 threads per process. I've even tried setting the heap size to 1gb and tried analyzing the heap using verbosegc option.But nothing helped.

Please help.

Agreed. Please don't cross post. It wastes people's time and effort.

This seems to have only a minor relationship to threads, in that the tasks in the pool didn't handle/report the error. It is likely your tasks didn't catch the error, so the error went all the way to the thread pool manager which finally reported it.

Regardless, please continue this discussion in the other topic.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
