Artifactory's Tomcat '$ARTIFACTORY_HOME/tomcat/conf/server.xml' file:
<Connector port="8081" maxThreads="2048" minSpareThreads="200" enableLookups="false" backlog="100"/>
<Connector port="8019" protocol="AJP/1.3" maxThreads="2048" minSpareThreads="200" enableLookups="false" backlog="100"/>
Note: Please only update the port(s) relevant for your setup, as defining both will allocate the minSpareThreads for both and could result in unused threads on one of the connectors (200 threads in the example above)
maxThreads default value: 200
Description: The maximum number of simultaneous requests that can be handled(by Tomcat).
