    JBoss EAP 6.3 Beta - Server Startup Timeout

    Sheldon Dsouza Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I am doing a performance test for JBoss EAP 6.3 Beta.

      I get the following message when server is started everytime.

       

      Stopping jboss-as:                                         [  OK  ]

      Starting jboss-as: jboss-as failed to startup in the time allotted

                                                                 [FAILED]

       

      When, i check the log, i see that server has started without any issues.

      Even the application deployed can be accessed.

       

      Can someone help me on why i get a failed status instead of OK?

       

      Also, i see that performance is not as good as JBoss 7.1.1

      Any tuning parameters available so that i can reach more http requests per second? (apart from executor parameter)

       

      Thanks,

      Sheldon

          How do you start the server and when you see the message?

           

          The performance is mostly related to the application and its requirements. The first point to check is the JVM GC behaviour which often cause issues. Check whether you use the same JVM version and settings and monitor/tune the GC.

            Hi,

             

            So, the JBoss EAP is started as a service.

            In most cases, the server is restarted (so that it stops and starts again)

             

            Commands used:

            service jboss restart

            service jboss start

            service jboss stop

             

            where jboss is a file created under /etc/init.d

             

            I thing noticed was that the stop command is not working.

            Although, the command prompt states OK, there is no entry in the log to state that server has been stopped.

             

            Also, on server startup, 2 issues are seen

             

            1) Failure to start server as address is already is use (which is expected if jboss did not stop correctly before)

             

            2) An error on the prompt which states Failed. However, as per server.log, there was no issue on startup

             

            On using the command: systemctl -l status jboss.service

            , below error message is seen that indicates that server did not startup on time allocated.

             

            [root@ip-12-1-0-26 log]# systemctl -l status jboss.service

            jboss.service - SYSV: JBoss AS Standalone

                This problem ive faced when i configure Jboss as Server in eclipse... How do you run your jboss from some IDE or Shell/Command Window ?

                  we both run it as a service

                    Realize this might be OBE but I got around this by editing the jboss-as.conf file and adding uncommenting/editing this line:

                    # The amount of time to wait for startup

                    #

                    STARTUP_WAIT=60

                     

                    After that I didn't get the error anymore. It's an imperfect solution as it seems to act like a 1 minute delay as opposed to an actual timeout but it's an acceptable workaround for me.

                      You might check the logfiles if there is a hint what need a long time, maybe initializing some resources took longer and you are able to improve here.
