Fellow midrange geeks:

We have a number of customers for which we are managing Tomcat servers on their own Midrange boxes (to run the web extension of our CRM product).

Differences in context deployment speeds is of course, in part, a function of how long it takes to get a 101M WAR file onto their machine. But that wouldn't be a factor in undeployment, nor in starting or stopping a context.

And we're finding wide variations in those speeds: sometimes, a matter of seconds, and sometimes you could go out and get coffee -- at the Starbuck's around the corner -- and find that it's still processing.

Sometimes, we'll see variations this extreme on boxes that are at least theoretically the same model. We've put Tomcat into its own subsystem, with its own private pool, and "throw memory at it," with little or no improvement in speed, and sometimes, we've seen boxes that look tiny and underpowered give quicker responses than big heavy-duty models.

Anybody have any suggestions we haven't already tried?
