I am trying to detrmine whether there is any specific configuration for tuning the web container thread pool for CQ. The only configuration I observe is OSGi 's Apache Sling Event Thread Pool but tuning this does not directly correlate to the thread pool that is used for serving web requests by the publish instance.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I work through tuning our CQ instance.
Which version of CQ are you running?
Up to 5.4, the CQSE thread pool can be configured in crx-quickstart/server/etc/server.xml
I am using CQ 5.5 hence finding it difficult to locate where I can configure the thread pool.
Unfortunately, the max thread settings is not exposed in CQ 5.5.However, all the other configurable settings (equivalent for server.xml) can be seen at 
This is fixed in CQ 5.6 current release.
