Confluence 504 error

Hi Team,

Confluence is returning 502 bad gateway error. I have done some analysis from the logs but need some concrete evidences for the exact root cause of the issue.

Can someone help me on the conclusion of the RCA?

I am sharing the logs for the reference.

Hi @Kanaka Ponnuru Prasad ,

error seems related to your confluence performance. There is a thread stuck. First of all verify jvm parameters and cpu (please share your current settings). Moreover you can follow this article in order to put in place a perfomance tuning of your instance

Hope this helps,


@Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_ ,

Thank you the prompt response.

You have mentioned that there is a Thread Stuck >>>>>>>>>

    Is there any impact due to this Thread stuck? If so what is the measure to be taken in order to prevent from next time onwards.

Error is related to Bad gateway and seems like networking issue  and a 502 error is usually not something you can fix, but requires a fix by the web server or the proxies you are trying to get access through.>>>>> I read from one of the article above line.

Can this be neglected? how it will be

Thank you!
