So I finally bit the bullet and updated our production server to Lucee. We
updated our test server to Lucee a few weeks ago and haven’t had any issue.
The software between our test and production environment is identical. The
only difference is the volume of traffic. Before upgrading from Railo to
Lucee, our install was rock solid. We could go months without a single
reboot of Tomcat/Railo or IIS. However, that’s all changed since upgrading
to Lucee. After we upgraded, we made sure all of our settings from our
server.xml were merged with Lucee’s install of the new Server.xml. TomCat
doesn’t seem to be crashing as we have FusionReactor running in the
background and we can still serve up requests to any website via port 8888.
I believe the core of the issue is with the BonCode connector.
Sporadically we receive the following message.
Generic Connector Communication Error:
Please check and adjust your setup:
Ensure that Tomcat is running on given host and port.
If this is a timeout error consider adjusting IIS timeout by changing
executionTimeout attribute in web.config (see manual).
An immediate refresh of the page/website and it loads right up. There is no
way to reproduce the error. It occurs on just about all of our roughly 85
sites randomly throughout the day. Prior to upgrading to Lucee we never had
this issue. In case its asked, all of our IIS application pools have the
IIS default 20min timeout. Some higher traffic sites are set to
We enabled logging on the boncode connector, and see this in just about all
of the boncode logs:

I’ve included some settings below that I believe are relevant to diagnosing
BonCodeAJP Connector Version 1.0.21
using setting file in C:\Windows\BonCodeAJP13.settings
Windows Server 2012 R1
Lucee 4.5.1.000 final
Apache Tomcat/7.0.61 <-- I tried several versions of tomcat
Java 1.7.0_76 (Oracle Corporation) 64bit
4096mb Ram dedicated to Lucee (32gigs server total)
A note about the above: I had set equal to what I had in
the server.xml, but that didn’t help with the error.
Connector settings in TomCat Server.xml
A note about the above: In our Railo install, we never had a
connectionTImeout attribute, but figured I would see if it would help.
Would appreciate any help anyone can offer.
