I am trying to delete the default Demonstration Space as it has been filled with junk pages and generally clogs up the system.
So far, the delete process has been running for 19+ hours and the estimate is more than a week to finish it.
Clearly something is wrong but I don't know what to check. The server is not in under any load and there is plenty of free disk space available.
Deleting a space is resource intensive, specifically, it can take up a lot of database connections and memory.
To narrow down what we are running out of (memory or database connections) please check:
Database connection pool
The atlassian-confluence.log at <confluence_home>/logs
Note: The <confluence_home> directory is the path defined in the following file: <confluence_install>/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/confluence-init.properties
Look for errors like:
GenericJDBCException: Cannot open connection
A ResourcePool could not acquire a resource from its primary factory or source.
If you find such errors, the instructions for increasing the database connection pool are on: Confluence slows and times out during periods of high load due to database connection pool For most installations it is just a matter of changing a line in confluence.cfg.xml line from something like:
In the browser, go to Confluence admin cog wheel, choose General Configuration and then System Information. The JVM memory statistics are on that page. Please let me know what the free percentage is under Heap Memory and what the Maximum Heap Size is set to.
If the free heap space is very low, the instructions for increasing what is available to Confluence are at: How to fix out of memory errors by increasing available memory
