thanks for the answers

Hi, can you check how many connections SQL Server accepts? Does it allow at least 60 connections? It might be an issue of having too many connections and the server doesn't accept it.

Can you let us know which version of SQL Server are you working with?

I am working with SQL Server 2008.

But is normal behavior that number of connection pool is so big?

I had first pool-size parameter set on 20, than 30 and now 60.

And connections is more and more.

Have i set up bigger pool-size parameter?

It's normal if you have a lot of concurrent users doing things. It means that you currently require a lot of concurrent connections, more than the max you have set.


i try increase max connections.


If your install serves < 200 users, you have a plugin that leaks connections. Increasing connections is not the idea.

See secure/admin/ViewMemoryInfo.jspa to check if your JIRA instance has enough memory to create connections.

Delete third-party plugins and and look on your JIRA.

Any update on this

This was due to worflow condition script or ? because we are facing connection pool problem in our environment.
