I'm a web site and app server systems engineer/administrator. I've been doing it for about 15 years.

Other than as an end-user or customer, I have no affiliation with any of the commercial or FOSS solutions that I may comment about on the StackExchange sites.

Can you post examples from your access log of the options requests coming from external IPs?

comment Numerous 404's for “alive.txt”, anybody know what that file could be?
I would suggest that you look into it a little further to see if it is one of your monitors that are not working or if it is coming from somewhere else.

Ours is looking more like a Sun tcp stack reassembly problem on the target FTP servers.

comment Accessing website through load balancer
Is your "direct to server" test hitting port 7002 and your "to load-balancer" test hitting port 7002 as well or does your load balancer listen on a different port? (Also, what is your load-balancer?)

You should get traces where it work and where it doesn't and compare. You might also be able to use the HTTPFox extension inside Firefox to view request and response headers as well.

comment CRC Checksum missmatch transfering large files to NAS
We're seeing a similar problem, which comes and goes on an irregular basis. I confess though that I don't understand how the byte-by-byte comparison could help pinpoint the source. Can someone give me some examples?

comment Is Tomcat vulnerable to the Apache DoS vulnerability in CVE-2011-3192?
Do you think that max heap size or tomcat's lower thread defaults might help tomcat in this case (or at least prevent swapping from occurring on the physical server)?

comment How to optimize Tomcat 6 SSL performance
If we assume that apache/openssl performs better than tomcat/jsse (and that may only be true at high loads), we do have the option of going native with tomcat so that we can use openssl there any way. However, changing the MaxKeepAliveRequest setting from 0 to something like 500 (apache's default) seems like a good start. Let us know how it worked out?
