Jira server seems to be running 2 tomcats..

My JIRA server is dedicated to Jira, no other apps on there. There seems to be a tomcat 6 and a tomcat 7 running. I am running JIRA 6.2. Is this an artifact from some previous upgrade? Are there any circumstances where this might be deliberate or can I just shut the old one down? Cheers

There should not be any circumstance where two Tomcat instances are running to support one instance of JIRA.

I would recommend shutting JIRA down gracefully, then checking to see if you still have a instance of Tomcat running - if so, you should be safe to shut it down, then restart JIRA. At that point, check again to make sure only one instance of Tomcat is up.

information If you're operating JIRA in a *nix environment, using the following command should provide the path to indicate the directory to which each instance of Tomcat is associated:

ps -ef | grep catalina

that worked a treat and my Jira, somewhat unsurprisingly, is much faster!
