since we have upgraded our Confluence (self hosted) server from 6.15.x to 7.0.3,
we sometimes have issues logging in onto Confluence;
I do not really know if Confluence tomcat server itself is crashing or - if only an Addon, like Duo Auth login-addon is responsible for the crash?
My current nasty workaround is:
-use the stop-shell-script:
-wait and kill other like 'java' dead processes
-restart confluence via
What I have already done so far:
-increase java heap xms and xmx to 1536m each...
-internal RAM is ~ 9GB, which should be enough, it has always been enough on the machine for v6.xx
-disable unnecessary plugins...
1. Do you have any suggestings?
2. Which log would/could help me? For what strings should I search?
Java tomcat, and confluence tends to create lots of output, what to search for???
3. Shall I update to latest x7.xx-confluence?
Keep in mind that 'updating' is always a pain in the a... - it takes time,
to reinstall, and re setup plugins like Duo Auth
4. And yes, I will consider writing Duo, but it is a big software company, usually the give a *** for small customers...
Funny thing to note, the Duo auth login is pretty old from 2017 - maybe it does not work very well with Confluence server v7 xx ??? v 1.4.3
PS: Ubuntu Server 16.04 LTS x64
using its internal OpenJDK 1.8.xx which comes within confluence..
duo login plugin v1.4.3 July 2017
Confluence Server 7.0.3
Little update for those who are interested:
I have upgraded 7.0.3 to latest 7.1.1
Funny thing: Duo snapshot from git seems to have been modified/updated i.e. on June 21 2019;
I will inform you guys if the updated version (including the updated Duo-addons) helped get the Confluence server more stable...
