    JBoss crashed under peak load

    pandu purnama Newbie

      Hello, I'm using JBoss 4.2.1 GA for my app. The app must regularly process & save a lot of data every 1 minute.

      After running the app scheduler on a few minutes, I got this error:

      javax.ejb.EJBTransactionRolledbackException: EntityManager must be access within a transaction

      Some forum suggested to extend the transaction timeout on /conf/jboss-service.xml.

      The advice worked great, the app runs fine for 1 day, but after that Jboss crashed leaving hs_err_pid.log file.

      I've tried extending the timeout little by little to get the sweet spot with no success, I got either the first error or Jboss crash.

      Is there any suggestion to solve this problem ?
      Thank's in advance.

          it would be necessary to know more details about your applications, anyway if jBoss is overwhelmed by the amount of request you might try to increase the thread pool in conf/jboss-service.xml
          for example:

          <mbean code="org.jboss.util.threadpool.BasicThreadPool"
           <attribute name="Name">JBoss System Threads</attribute>
           <attribute name="ThreadGroupName">System Threads</attribute>
           <attribute name="KeepAliveTime">60000</attribute>
           <attribute name="MaximumPoolSize">500</attribute>
           <attribute name="MaximumQueueSize">2000</attribute>
           <attribute name="BlockingMode">run</attribute>

          hope it helps
