Dear chuikingman,

That is really simple: install Java-monitor (http://java-monitor.com/install.html) and then look at the HTTP pool graph for you HTTP connector.

Dear chuikingman,

You use Java 1.4 in production? Wow. You realize that even Java 1.5 is already EOSL (http://java-monitor.com/forum/showthread.php?t=619), never mind 1.4?

The only (messy) way I can think of is to force a thread dump (kill -3 on the pid) on the Tomcat process and then go through the logs to count the threads that have a name like <something>http<something>.

Or upgrade to Java 1.6 (and get a nice performance boost) and use Java-monitor. :)

PS. Here is a list of the JDK versions compared (http://java-monitor.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8), by the way.
