Setting up Tomcat for productive use

Hey All,

not sure if there is another thread about this topic but i could not found any good answers.

Regarding several questions from customers or partners and also some internal projects i have a question regarding the setup of Tomcat for productive usage.

Running ThingWorx in an OOTB Tomcat installation is mostly good enough for a development environment but is there any guide or document that describe the optimal configuration covering security and performance settings for Tomcat that is running ThingWorx?

Many Thanks!

Sebastian

Hi Sebastian,

For the moment we do not have a complete guide for this specific action of running ThingWorx on top of Tomcat in production environments, however I’ve found some information on how to use Tomcat in production:

a. Stackoverflow thread which explains the basics on how to use Tomcat in production environments

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4182716/running-tomcat-in-production-environments

b. Complete presentation from Mark Thomas, Tomcat developer, entitled "Tomcat Tuning"

http://people.apache.org/~markt/presentations/2009-04-01-TomcatTuning.pdf

c. Apache Tomcat 8 Configuration Reference

https://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-8.0-doc/config/context.html

d. 21 Apache Tomcat Configuration Tips

Let me know if you have related questions or clarification regarding this subject ?

Hello,

That's true, please especially take into the consideration the Appendix A: Tomcat Java Option Settings.
