I was waiting for someone to respond, but nobody wants to say anything, it seems.

Personally, I'd RTFM on the LockoutRealm in the Tomcat docs at tomcat.apache.org. If you have questions about what it says, ask us.

I have found the solution for the below mentioned issue.

Here is the solution:

1)In Tomcat5 and earlier versions,one cannot close Gap "locking out tomcat manager user after particular incorrect login atempts"
because LockOutRealm.class file in not available in Catalina.jar.

2)In Tomcat6 and later versions ,We can close Gap "locking out tomcat manager user after pparticular incorrect login atempts"
because LockOutRealm.class file is available in Catalina.jar.

3)To close the "locking out tomcat manager user after particular incorrect login atempts" Gaps.You need to add the follow className
and attributes in server.xml:-

<Realm className="org.apache.catalina.realm.LockOutRealm" failureCount="3" lockOutTime="300" cacheSize="1000"
cacheRemovalWarningTime="3600">

Thanks
Krishna
