Jira UI gets screwed up....

Hi All

We are running on an ancient version of jira 3.13 on 500 MB RAM(we are in the process of upgrading to 5.X). The issue is that the production instance becomes ununsable (the UI screws up) every morning and we have to manually restart the jira instance to fix the problem. We are getting these errors in the logs. It seems that due to lack of memory Jira is not able to load all the components.

As it is a production instance can anyone please suggest any quick fixes for a temporary period of time espicially until new year.

The GC overhead limit is related to not enough memory to run the GC process. You might want to check this documentation for more informatin.
