Lately I had to reconfigure an Ubuntu 14.04 server.
Dealing with Tomcat 7 I’ve encountered those two situations:
Enable larger file uploads via Tomcat manager
I had a ~180 war file to deploy. Ubuntu’s Tomcat setting put a limit at 50MB. This has been solved using the tips in this post by skotfred. Unfortunately I haven’t found a more orthodox way of achieving this other than modify the /usr/share/tomcat7-admin/manager/WEB-INF/web.xml in the values max-file-size and max-request-size.
Enable Tomcat monitoring in Munin
Here I’ve followed the tips over this Serverfault discussions.
Adding a [tomcat_ *] was the key.
