Should Confluence 5.4.4 to 5.6.6 Upgrade Migration Take Hours?

The upgrade itself took only a few minutes but the initial startup is in its 4th hour migrating tasks and tables.  We've done many upgrades over the years, and not seen one with such a sizeable, slow migration on startup.


plugins.tasklist.upgradetask.StorageToAoMigrationUpgradeTask logProgress Migrating tasks to active objects. 30915 tasks migrated so far.

confluence.upgrade.recovery.ConfluenceProgressMonitor begin TABLE_DATA: [BODYCONTENT]

Thanks for any information you can offer.

We just went from 5.5 to 5.6 and it did in fact take about 3 hours.

As long as the log is plugging away, you should be good!

Thanks Andy.  It took just over 3 hrs.  We have a large instance.  Spoke with Support.  There are a lot of table migrations between 5.4, 5.5 & 5.6 and a major restructuring of Tasks.
