Bug 43995

Summary: Sendfile thread uses 100% cpu for long periods
Product: Tomcat 5 Reporter: Michiel Thuys <pi2tj2puk>

Description Michiel Thuys 2007-11-29 06:22:51 UTC
Issue 42925 that was reported for Tomcat 6 also applies to Tomcat 5.5. When
using the Apache Portable Runtime, the sendfile thread can take 100% CPU load
when a poll descriptor time-out occurs. This happens because Poll.maintain() is
never called for the sendfile thread.

The proposed patch (http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=20930)
can also be applied to Tomcat 5.5.
