We have a new application that will be deployed in production. We are using Tomcat 7. Is there a basics tuning parameters that needs to configured regardless of what kind of application we have.
For example can we increase maxThreads since by default its 200, set compression etc.
Also best practices to perform load test given we don't know how many users will be hitting the application. All we know max 4000 users but dont know if they all will hit the application same time during the day, or week.
