Have you tried using Hercules, the support analysis tool embedded into Confluence 4.x? One other suggestion would be check your log files and see if the first occurrence of this tallies up with the installation date of a plugin.

Yes i tried Hercules but no luck.

Hi Atlassians, Any advise on this please??

Hi Spatruni,

I see this issue seems to be related to calling a macro, and I've seen similar issues with Confluence calling external macros, but can you check which macro you're having the problem with and let me know? I'm also not sure that we're going to be able to figure this out for you from this log snippet alone so you might want to open a support ticket if this is affecting the functionality of your instance in anyway.

All the best,
