Confluence. Error while uploading attachment. java.lang.RuntimeException: There was a problem evicting or flushing an AttachmentData object

confluence 4.3 + mysql 5.5 + apache 2.2 on windows server 2008 r2

Attachment storage = database

Attachment max size = 20.00 MB

Hi Alex,

It is quite difficult to pin point the cause of the issue with only partial stack trace to review. However this particular line:

caused by: com.mysql.jdbc.exceptions.jdbc4.CommunicationsException: Communications link failure The last packet successfully received from the server was 47 milliseconds ago. The last packet sent successfully to the server was 47 milliseconds ago.
at sun.reflect.GeneratedConstructorAccessor605.newInstance(Unknown Source)

Seems to indicate that Confluence was not able to connect to your database in the process of attaching the attachment due to communication failure. We highly recommend you to review our documentation and see if the provided resolution help stabilize your database.

Hope it help.

Cheers,

Thanks for your reply.

There are lots of suggestions in common on link provided. Could you help to find out the particular reason of the problem, then I'll be able concentrate on it.

I did follow recommendations step 4:

threads from conf\server.xml

maxProcessors="75" enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443" acceptCount="10" debug="0" connectionTimeout="20000"

db connections from cfg.xml

<property name="hibernate.c3p0.max_size">60</property>
<property name="hibernate.c3p0.max_statements">0</property>
<property name="hibernate.c3p0.min_size">0</property>
<property name="hibernate.c3p0.timeout">30</property>

And the problem soon had been reproduced

Again, it would be difficult to pin point without the rest of the data and the mentioned additional information. HOwever for a start you can try to increase the max connection as mentioned on steps 4
