We have a couple of critical Java Web Apps running on a bunch of Apache Tomcat 7 servers, on top of Centos 6.x.
From time to time, once or twice a week, one of the Tomcat instances suddenly shuts down, with no trace, no OutOfMemory Exceptions, no other Known/Unknow exceptions are being logged. I have checked Tomcat Logs, Application specific Logs, /var/log/* logs and no evidence of an issue.
The incoming traffic/users are load balanced to several other Tomcat HTTP Servers, and by the time of the issue, the other servers are behaving OK.
The server that shuts down varies each time, so I can not blame a specific server for this failure.
Linux flavor and version are CentOS release 6.3 (Final).
Each server has 2 CPU Cores and 4 GB of RAM.
Can you please guide me on troubleshooting this error, I am running out of ideas and tools.
Thanks in advance!
