JIRA goes very slow after enabling/disabling plugins


Whenever i enable a plugin (any plugin) jira (jira6.1) simply goes very very slow.

Last week i tried enabling tempo, it went slow adn then i had to reboot to get the performance back.

This week this again happened with Script runner.

This makes me believe it may not be due to the plugins but something to do with jira.

what may be cuasing this?

Is a re-indexing mandatory after enabling of a plugin?

On JIRA 5, the plugin enabling did not cause any issues.

PS: I am on the compatible versions of the plugins mentioned. and there is nothing in the logs.

Hi Rahul,

This is caused by the bug below, and will be fixed on JIRA 6.3:

- https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-37337- Batch CSS and Javascript generation cause long delays in page loading after plugin modification



thanks Danilo that helps....

I suggest that you have some trouble with old indexes. Please try to delete and recreate the indexes (folder \caches\indexes). First shutdown your JIRA instance, delete the folder, then restart JIRA and recreate the indexes.

It helped me! Thanks!

Is this the same system you just jumped from 4 to 6 and are having issues with?

No thats a different user, who jumped 4 to 6. I upgraded from 5.0 to 6.1 last week and having this issue thereafter.
