Bamboo 6.10 Hanging Builds


I have two instances of Bamboo one is 6.8.0 and the other one is 6.10.  I have the same build job on both which is running a clean war on a grails application - I have no issues running it on 6.8.0 - it completes in about 2 minutes.  However on the 6.10 box it just hangs on the compile and finally blows up the box from high CPU and high memory.  The hardware is exactly the same 4GB RAM 2vCPU's 80GB SSD - I created the 6.10 version by creating a new instance of the 6.8.0 box and then doing the upgrade.  The only configuration difference is the 6.8.0 had the H2 DB and the 6.10 has an external Postgres DB.  

I tried adding and uncommenting the JVM options to the but still hangs and then blows up.

Code Snippet from

#  Occasionally Atlassian Support may recommend that you set some specific JVM arguments.  You can use this variable below to do that.


${JVM_SUPPORT_RECOMMENDED_ARGS:="-XX:+PrintGCTimeStamps -verbose:gc -Xloggc:gc.log -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError"}



#  Uncomment the line below to enable the Byteman agent.


#JVM_SUPPORT_RECOMMENDED_ARGS="$JVM_SUPPORT_RECOMMENDED_ARGS -javaagent:../tools/byteman/lib/byteman.jar=listener:true"



# The following 2 settings control the minimum and maximum given to the Bamboo Java virtual machine.  In larger Bamboo instances, the amounts will need to be increased.

# We recommend that the minimum and maximum be set to the same value.






# The following are the required arguments need for Bamboo standalone.
