Confluence Server Slow Dwon





There is a periodic slowdown during operation.

I checked realted logs. This logs are continuously output.

2019-05-29 11:16:38,517 WARN [alert-dispatch:thread-1] [confluence.alert-log] log 1559096198513 ; WARNING ; JVM ; JVM-1002 ; Garbage collection exceeded time limit ; not-detected ;  ;  ; {"durationInMillis":10222,"windowInMillis":20000,"limitPercent":10,"threadMemoryAllocations":"","threadDump":[]}
2019-05-29 11:16:38,520 WARN [alert-dispatch:thread-1] [atlassian-monitor] log 2019-05-29T02:16:38.513Z Component 'Java' alerted 'Garbage collection exceeded time limit' (details: {"durationInMillis":10222,"windowInMillis":20000,"limitPercent":10,"threadMemoryAllocations":"","threadDump":[]}, trigger: {"pluginKey": "not-detected"})


Restarting Confluence is fine for a while(about 2 weeks).


Our Confluence Server Version is 6.13.4.

We use Bitbucket, Confluence and Jira on one server. (100 user license)

  • Real user is about 60.
  • Server Memory : 32G


I thik the suspicious part is as follows

  • Configuration
    • Server.xml
      • maxThreads : 100
    • confluence.cfg.xml
      • hibernate.c3p0.max_size : 125
  • Backup
    • We perform the backup at dawn. Looking at the results of the monitoring, it seems that memory is being used at the maximum.

How can we solve this problem?


Thank you for your help.

Any updates on this, I suffer same issue - I think the key is 


{"pluginKey": "not-detected"})

First we increased the physical memory(32G -> 64G). And we increased the heap size of the following item. There has been no problem for two months now.

  • /opt/atlassian/confluence/bin/
    • CATALINA_OPTS="-Xms1024m -Xmx1024m -XX:+UseG1GC ${CATALINA_OPTS}" ------> CATALINA_OPTS="-Xms1500m -Xmx1500m -XX:+UseG1GC ${CATALINA_OPTS}"
    • 1024m -> 2000m

Hi Norman.  Did you ever find out any more information regarding the

{"pluginKey": "not-detected"}) alert?  We are suffering the same problem.

Sure, this was a problem in the Refined (Wiki) plugin.

The vendor was very helpfull and provided new jar file (the plugin is updated on the marketplace long time ago now)

Like # people like this

We're also seeing

{"pluginKey": "not-detected"})

How did you determine which plugin was related?



As stated above - i belive it was Refined - but its a year ago, so I dont remember much else..

Long GC pause can cause performance issues.For GC tuning please refer.
