Fisheye/SVN connection stopping


Our connection from Fisheye to SVN keep stopping then after a few days it may come back of it's own accord.

The errors are like this

Repository paused due to error com.cenqua.fisheye.config.ConfigException: Could not access :

orgt.apache.subversion.javahl.ClientException: svn E175002 connection refused by the server

svn: E175002 PROPFIND request failed on '/subversion/branches/SonarScanFixes'



Any ideas what could be causing this to stop and then come back by itself?

I will take a look at the SVN itself and where you are running it. Can you setup a cron to monitor your Subversion repository uptime and see if there's something wrong with it?

Ok thanks, it's a shared server, what kind of things specifically would I be looking for or where after cron is set up?

Maybe FishEye opens to many connections to your Subversion server? See

PS: What version of Apache Httpd do you have?

Apache version 2.2.21

Could that be contributing to this?

Apache has various bugs, we had a number of bug reports historically so I would suggest to the latest version if possible. In one of bugs recently analysed by us it's recommended to use at least httpd 2.4.10.
