CPU and memory are being fully consumed after 7.18.1 patch

Hello Atlassian Community,

I'm running into issues with the new 7.18.1 patch. After I upgrade, my CPU and RAM become fully consumed which causes confluence to crash. I checked the logs and I saw that there was a Java.lang.OutOfMemoryError. I thought that it could be possible that the new version needs additional resources so I gave my VM 6 CPU / 16 GB ram and it still grinds to a halt.

Is anyone else having this issue? I would like to get confluence working on 7.18.1 so that I can be protected against the most recent CVE threat.

I'm not sure what your specific configuration was, but we had the same issue because the /bin/ file was overwritten with the default during the upgrade and we lost our  Java heap size modifications in the CATALINA_OPTS variable. Default was 1024m, we use 4GB.
