Tomcat 8.5.9 restart is really slow on my CentOS 7.2 droplet
I’ve got tomcat 8.5.9 installed on a CentOS 7.2 droplet. When I restart tomcat, with only the tomcat manager in the webapps directory, restarts take anywhere from 3 to 15 minutes, and sometimes even longer. Has anyone seen such behavior? Top doesn’t show much CPU or memory being consumed by Java. We’re running OpenJDK 1.8.0_111. Normal restart times with no webapps is a couple of seconds on other systems.
