i am using tomcat 3.2.1 on Redhat linux 7.3.
After starting tomcat, when i check out the processes running on the machine using ps -ax, i see lots of java processes. All these processes seem to be taking up lots of resources. Is there any way of reducing the number of processes.
Thanks

As I understand it, on Linux, each Thread shows up as a process, but it is really not actually taking up that many resources. Most of those Threads are essential housekeeping Threads, but you can control the number of Threads that are available to process requests - see the <Connector elements in the server.xml file - the minProcessors and maxProcessors attributes control the number of Threads.
