We have a Cisco MeetingPlace Express conference server, version 1.1. Logging in and scheduling meetings works, but Internet Explorer times out joining a meeting.

Client checks performed:

  • Clients pass the browser test,
  • Flash is working,
  • pop-up blockers are off,
  • the fault is the same in Trusted Sites and Intranet IE security zones.

Server checks performed:

  • Full reboot,
  • mpx_sys restart
  • mpx_app restart

Interesting errors:

06/25 11:11:01:00 MAJ 1048780 44 (90,0,0,0) sblob_dbs is 90% full

There's an IBM Informix Dynamic Server Version 10.00 database under all of this. Is the nearly-full "BLOB" DB causing the time-out?

I'm thinking that the fault is server-side. I'm grateful for any trouble-shooting tips for any of the products involved;

  • Cisco MeetingPlace Express 1.1
  • Macromedia Breeze
  • IBM Informix Dynamic Server

Here's a clue...

MPE : Breeze Web Conferencing becomes slow and unresponsive , Fixed CSCsr61095

Symptom: Web Conferencing becomes slow and unresponsive.

Conditions: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express 2.0(3.5)

Workaround: Restart corrects the issue temporarily.

Further Problem Description: Slow query messages can be seen in the logs. example: fgrep SLOW /opt/macromedia/breeze/logs/support/debug* Sample out put from cli [root@incredible logs]# fgrep SLOW /opt/macromedia/breeze/logs/support/debug* /opt/macromedia/breeze/logs/support/debug.log:[07-31 01:30:08] sche (d) SLOW QUERY: 545ms spid:24 c As the slow query messages build up the Breeze component eventually hangs and will require a restart to restore service.

Although in the question a restart doesn't help.
