I have some servers.
I try not to update them.
They are tools, not toys.

The lights are all out.
The servers chanting loud.
Like monks at compline.

comment Where is my space on /var being used?
@Yaarrg: I'm no Tomcat expert, so there may be less disruptive solutions, but yes that should work. Also see Marcello Bittencourt's answer which would help confirm the cause of the problem.

comment Web Cluster with 10,000 connections
@Tom: True. I imagine that a typical quad-core Intel Xeon with SAS would do better but I didn't find benchmarks for that which relate to the question. Ideally, jtnire would set up his/her own benchmark test using something like apachebench or JMeter.

comment Force program to use only specific local port
@Shane: Web-browsers try to concurrently fetch multiple resources (images, CSS, JS etc) for a page. To do this they need multiple connections, each TCP connection to the same server (& to port 80 say) needs a different source port otherwise the individual connections cannot be distinguished.

+1 for reseller suggestion. I suspect some hosting services allow resellers to re-brand the service as their own.
