JIRA Health Check Warning

Why is the latest JIRA Health Check plugin warning about the Thread Limit setting at 4096 and recommends setting it at 4,096? This is like the "keyboard error, press any key to continue" type of error. 

This is silly!

Drew could you provide a screenshot so we see what you mean? Do you get rid of the warning by increasing the limit?

So I set my ulimits according to Jira's docs recommended settings. 4096 soft and 8192 hard, I still got the health check warning.


Weird I don't get any warning on Linux. I have the latest versions of all. What OS you on? If Linux you can compare to my /proc/<PID>/limits .

Using latest CentOS. This never complained until the most recent healthcheck plugin updates.

So it seems if I set my soft limit to 4097, the error goes away.

$ ulimit -u

$ cat /etc/security/limits.d/20-nproc.conf
# Default limit for number of user's processes to prevent
# accidental fork bombs.
# See rhbz #432903 for reasoning.

* soft nproc 4096
root soft nproc unlimited
jira soft nproc 4097
jira hard nproc 8192


I just find the error odd that it would tell me that my max process setting is 4096 and I should set it to 4,096 in the error message.


Agreed but its most likely a validation bug. Just report it in their support portal if you want them to address it smile

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
