Martin, thanks for forwarding along your JSP. It's interesting to see the different approaches we used to getting the same data in some cases. I'd love to integrate any ideas or enhancements you come up with to improve our servlet.

Yes, I think there's definitely room for a lot more operations-oriented sessions and BOFs. I suppose we're the folks who need to submit the proposals. :)

Great news. Yes, even if it's just an idea for another stat that would be useful that perhaps I hadn't thought of, and no code, please let me know.

How do they fail? Just blank, a Tomcat error, or just a generic 500 or 403 or something? Lots of the /tomcat/* calls use the MBeans, so if something were different about your Tomcat configuration around the use of JMX, that might interfere with those, but the thread ones don't use the MBean API, so that shouldn't be it.

Are you talking directly to a Tomcat HTTP connector with your requests to this servlet or going through Apache? Possibly the "/tomcat/" string in the URI is getting caught up somewhere. That's the best idea I can come up with right now. It'd be helpful if there were some logging in the code, eh? :)
