Constant max_allowed_packet-error

Hi there, 

since we updated our System to "El Capitan", we face once per day a crash where we have to restart JIRA and Confluence stating 

  • Hibernate operation: could not load: [com.atlassian.confluence.core.ContentEntityObject#360565]; SQL []; Packet for query is too large (3715 > 1024). You can change this value on the server by setting the max_allowed_packet' variable.; nested exception is com.mysql.jdbc.PacketTooBigException: Packet for query is too large (3715 > 1024). You can change this value on the server by setting the max_allowed_packet' variable.

We now tried everything we found and have now reached 512M as the value for max_allowed_packet in both the mysqld and mysqldump section but no success. Anyone an idea on how to solve this?

  1. OSX is not a supported server platform for Confluence. You really should consider a supported server-grade OS.
  2. How do you know the system crashes?
  3. Have you restarted Confluence + MySQLServer after making this change?
  1. I know, but that has been no problem in the last 4 years and everything worked fine so far
  2. I know that the system crashes due to all the error messages and the non-working system.
  3. Yes, since I need to restart the systems to get them back to work again.
