#StackBounty: #performance #tomcat7 #ajp Application slowness due to Tomcat waiting for readLatch

Bounty: 50

we are getting issues reported by our clients that the application is slow at times, while checking the slow requests (using Glowroot) we could find quite a lot of threads getting stuck in org.apache.tomcat.util.net.NioEndpoint$KeyAttachment.awaitReadLatch (we are using Tomcat 7), the stack trace is given below. Can someone give us a clue what could be wrong, as we are not able to find out the reason.
