    Slow startup time: InventoryManager

    Alexandros Karypidis Novice


      I am experiencing very long startup times on a clean installation of JBossESB 4.5. The culprit seems to be the "InventoryManager" component which takes ages to start. I am not knowledgeable in it, but it seems to be scanning the network for something and takes a long time to time out.

      Here are characteristic fragments from the log:

      2009-05-23 12:08:07,624 INFO [org.rhq.core.pc.inventory.AutoDiscoveryExecutor] Executing server discovery scan...
      15 second pause here

      15 second pause here
      2009-05-23 12:08:35,108 INFO [org.rhq.core.pc.inventory.InventoryManager] Detected new Server [Resource[id=-4, type=Embedded Tomcat Server, key=jboss-web.deployer, name=MYCOMPUTER Embedded JBossWeb Server 2.0.1.GA (, version=2.0.1.GA]] - adding to local inventory...
      20 second pause here

      So, nearly one minute out of the start time is during this discovery process. Any suggestions on how to improve thing?
