I've just upgraded our JIRA to 5.2 on a Linux test server and most things seem to be working OK so far, however there is this one issue.
The activity streams on user profiles aren't appearing, they just time out then display a "One or more activity sources were slow to respond and are not included" message, after just a few seconds. The streams on other types of pages eg. Project pages seem to work fine.
I should also mention that at first after the upgrade these stream were working, however they were extremely slow. This combined with a general slowness of the system prompted me to attempt increasing the amount of RAM given to Jira, however this didn't seem to help the overall speed of the system and as an added bonus the User Activity Streams haven't been working since - even after I changed the memory allocation back to its default 768mb.
So, any suggestions?
Did this get answered? I'm suddenly seeing this in the activity stream of our JIRA 5.2.11. Clicking the longer timeout button works, but is there any way to make it run the query faster? Can I give the server more power?
I've installed a new version 6.3.14 and imported the data from our existing JIRA, and this is giving the same error, but specifying a single source that didn't respond quickly so is excluded.
It's been a while since I've revisited this thread, but here's some info that may help someone out there. Most of our slowness was due to a plugin called Jitter. https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/org.svansson.jitter
This is the plugin responsible for that social-media type notification up in the JIRA header which notifies you if there are any updates that pertain to you. Basically this plugin does a whole table scan every time it is invoked. The problem is that it is invoked for every user, in every page. So the bigger the table, the longer it takes and the slower the response. Our DBA was able to determine the query and if you're really interested you can send me a PM and I can provide it. Basically you have a few options.
Hopefully this helps people out.
