We are experiencing problem with one of our instance that has the most load. We have our connections pools that hit the max (we double it up to 80) and also slowdown over the instances. Any optimization of the JVM would help.
We are wondering if this could be the Groovy scripts running on our instance. We have scripts that are :
on Create issue (to set a custom field automatic from 2 other custom field) and transition on workflow
Create issue automatic and link them to each other
Set Component automatic, set assignee automatic depending on fields.
All those are in try catch naturally so if it has errors we would see it.
For setting the JVM you would suggest what?
Right now we have this (tomcat 6)

We were thinking of adding this :
Groovy creates classes dynamically, but the default Java VM does not GC the PermGen. If you are using Java 6 or later, add -XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC. UseConcMarkSweepGC is needed to enable CMSClassUnloadingEnabled.
How much should we increase the Code Cache or any idea on other settings

Statistic on instance
Over 1 gig of access log by day (5000 users log on) lot of soap/rest scripts (that we QOS 5 actions by second by ip).
Any help would be gratefull.
I hope you realize you're on a forum and not on the official Atlassian support. That being my disclaimer:
1. You have big GC times. Those times should be minimized. The idea is to downsize a bit your heap, for instance set it to 4Gb for instance, since the CG will clear less. Also, try setting the young gen size to 20-25% (for 4Gb total => 1Gb).
Also, you may want to use -XX:MaxGCPauseMillis=1000 to establish a target timeframe for your CG.
-XX:+UseParallelOldGC implies AFAIK
-XX:+UseParallelGC, so no need to specify both, it's just confusing
Rule for setting
-XX:ParallelGCThreads is usually ncores - 1.
2. If you want to have no pauses in CG, use:
-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:+CMSIncrementalMode -XX:+CMSIncrementalPacing
(but overall performance may be a bit lower, however users will not see pauses)
3. It's ok to increase CodeCacheSize, but put it at 128m for the beginning.
4. I do not know what to say about sql connection pools. That should be carefully monitorized, so please take a look there as well ... https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Tuning+Database+Connections
My 2 cents. Please search this forum, I saw some nice examples of tuning ...
Nothing particularly bad about your suggested parameters - here's what we're running our production environment with:
Basic Java server process options:
-server -Djava.awt.headless=true -XX:-EliminateLocks
Heap size options: – NewSize is set to 20% of heap size. Allocate the full heap at start up.
-Xmx6g -Xms6g -XX:NewSize=1200m -XX:MaxNewSize=1200m
Garbage collector options: – Use the Concurrent collector for the Old Generation and the Parallel Copying Collector for the Young Generation; the
-XX:+UseParNewGC GC is better suited to heaps less than 10GB in size.
-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:+UseParNewGC -XX:+DisableExplicitGC
See the following for additional details on these GC's:
Heap dump options: – Can be useful for diagnosing out of memory errors, but be careful - can take a long time if the storage being dumped to isn't fast.
Prevent crashes due to PermGen space unloading:
Necessary when using ConcMarkSweepGC according to https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/unloading-class-sun-reflect-generatedmethodaccessor-found-in-tomcat-logs-321860781.html
So, long story short - your parameters don't seem mental and the combination of the two GC's is a strategy which I've used over the years. It's interesting that Atlassian now appear to have standardised on the G1GC which I've also had decent experience with recently.
