Bitbucket Server pull request page times out after moving home directory to nfs mount in CentOS 7

We recently moved the home drive for Bitbucket Server to an NFS mount for easier expandability and data recovery. Shortly after, users started reporting performance problems. The page times out when trying to look at diffs on a pull request page or just waiting for the "Merge" button to resolve.

At the times people complain, I see the following in the profiler log:

 [2.8ms] - Page com.atlassian.bitbucket.user.UserService.findGroupsByUser(String,PageRequest)

In a test environment, I changed the nfs mount options to the recommended for data center (I cannot find "server" recommendations).
IT told me they do not see any issue on the NFS side. I don't know what else to try. We can't go back to local VM storage. It is not sustainable for backup and recovery.
Any ideas would be very helpful. Thanks.

Hi Edward,

Did you move the entire home directory to NFS or just the shared directory? Moving the entire home directory to NFS is strongly discouraged since caches reside in this directory, and having those on NFS defeats the purpose of the caches (since they're supposed to locally cache files from NFS for faster access).

The whole home directory.

Changing the nfs mount options to the following may have fixed it.


But I would like to investigate your suggestion. Is there a guide? Do I just mount the nfs folder to "shared"?

Hi Edward,

Yep, you can just mount NFS to <BitbucketHome>/shared.

You can find more at under Step 1. Configure file share mounts.
