    JBOSS 5.1.0 occasionally does not fully startup

    Mike Broderick Newbie

      We are seeing intermittent issues where JBOSS does not seem to fully startup (5.1.0 on CentOS 5.6 x86_64)   The server is up and listening on port 8080, but browsing to that port does not get a response.  I.e., I can telnet to the port to confirm there is a listener but get no response to say, browsing to the port.  We will restart JBOSS using the init.d script.  Sometimes it takes a couple restarts to get it to startup properly.   I have modified the startup script to save a copy of the consle.log and boot.log on startup (and remove the tmp dir) contents.  I have   have reviewed these logs but see no obvious errors.  The only notable difference between a good startup and hung one is the last log entry:




      console.log.20130214163804:14:19:52,304 INFO  [Http11AprProtocol] Starting Coyote HTTP/1.1 on http-

      That's what I see most of the hangs (stopping after the port 8443 msg).  On a couple hangs, the last entry was the port 8081 message (instead of 8443).  The boot.log for a good vs bad startup looks the same (same msgs, number of lines, etc).  E.g., The last messages from the last hang today is:

      Looking for tips on how to narrow this down further or if there are any known issues related to this I can look into.
