We've been working with Jira and Confluence on a Debian 6 VPS for a while now. Everything is fine as far as their daily use is concerned.
The issue we are encountering now is that occasionally, the VPS hosting both solutions will hang on CPU overcharge or even crash after a huge memory usage.
This was not happening before adding Confluence to Jira.
I have noticed lots and lots of unterminated logging processes from both of them, and I was wondering if that was a normal situation or if something was wrong with our setup.
Here is a screenshot of the
htop showing that huge list of processes:
The same goes on for Confluence.
My question is the following : is it a normal situation? Are these still alive and possibly causing a memory hog later on?
I haven't been able to find any clues regarding that matter yet.
