comment HTTPS not working on Tomcat 7
It looks like you have two issues. A cert issue and a firewall issue. Is the Tomcat server remote?

comment Java keystore: How to import the ca certificates correctly?
How did you import / request the cert in the firstplace?

comment Java keystore: How to import the ca certificates correctly?
I wasn't aware that the intermediate certs had to be linked within the JKS for this work (I've created many JKS files over the years and a JKS tool: code.google.com/p/java-keyutil). Are clients showing a break in the trust chain?

Have you tried passing -trustcacerts when importing?

A proxy does not prevent you from running your service over HTTPS. You can run HTTPS from your proxy to Tomcat if you desire, using self-signed certs to reduce complication. Only SSL client authentication with user authorisation makes things tricky, but that can be negated by having Apache pass the authentication headers. I'm thinking of a solution for your asked problem

It's good practice to put your application layer (I.e. Tomcat) behind a presentation layer. You can use Apache to proxy requests to your Tomcat server, which means you only need to configure HTTPS on Apache.

comment How to pass raw Ansible params to Windows cmd without any encoding/decoding?
Does this occur if you put the icacls command in a play book rather than on the command line?

comment Limiting memory usage and minimizing swap thrashing on Unix / Linux
@RichVel renicing doesn't reduce CPU usage - it's reprioritises. The point was to use process prioritisation to prioritise certain memory hungry processes at the expense of others. This would reduce how much memory would need to be swapped in and out for every process to run. Your answer is good but doesn't exclude my original comment from 3 years ago.

can you check dmesg for information about the detected size of /dev/vda on startup of the guest. fdisk /dev/vda should be showing the new size.

comment KVM: how to resize guest VM disk via LVM
I've just noticed the hostname is familiar to me - a cable operator I once worked with. What are the chances!? You might want to edit your question to obscure it! I'm still thinking about your problem....

And I presume you've tried partprobe and/or rebooted the guest?
