Jira User Session Requests

What is User Session Request value?

I am new, learning Sys Admin on downloaded Jira system connected to Oracle DB. The Oracle DB contains other data besides Jira and other application is having trouble running out of Oracle sessions or processes. Sometimes it appears to overload the physical resources if the machines trying to get to Oracle and sometimes it seems to be Oracle getting confused.

I am trying to rule out Jira application as source for problem. During earlier problems with other application, Jira DB monitoring shows less than 5 in connection pool (active or idle) and spike of Reads/Writes below 20 but the Current User Session Requests.

Hello Pat,

What you see in JIRA user sessions is related to sessions from users to Tomcat Service

for example, you same user has two browsers (crhome and firefox) conencted to Jira, this user will have 2 sessions on tomcat.

in your database pool you will see session between JIRA and your database server.

So what is your question? Can you elaborate what you meant by "User Session Requests"

I have one user that has been logged on for 1h 18h and has 733 requests and another user with 1043 requests logged in for 4d 19h.

The user @ 1043 is up from 843 this time yesterday.

Is a request any activity that connects to DB and not necessarily related to Reads or Writes?

Could this level of requests be possibly causing problems in Oracle DB?

Where are you seeing these request counts?

If it is from JIRA page access, it can be due to many factors. Many plugins and pages does refresh automatically behind the scenes - dashboard gadgets, GreenHopper boards,view issue screen with Tempo plugin.

And what problems are you seeing int eh Oracle DB?
