I have a JEE ear application deployed on 2 clusters with 2 instances each on Glassfish v3.1. These are load balanced by an Apache server running on the same machine. My problem is that I am frequently seeing the following error messages frequently in the mod_jk.log file. Can you help me understand what the issue is?

These are not error, but informational messages ("info"). As you can see here, here or here, a message like

sending request to tomcat failed (unrecoverable), because of client write error (attempt=1)

usually means means that the client disconnected by pressing the stop or back button in their browser during or after a request, thus Tomcat cannot send the response to the client any more.

If you have encountered no other problems you then this is nothing to worry about.
