    How to reduce Jboss Startup Time

    Muhammad Kashif Newbie

      Hi All,

      Sorry if i am posting this question again but i m unable to find its answer.

      i have just installed Latest Jboss 5.0. and have deployed my application successfully. but my problem is that Jboss is takeing 2 much time to start. in parallel i am using tomcat to deploy my application and it takes only 15-20 seconds to deploy my application. but Jboss takes almost 4 minutes to deploy it.

      Wt i see is that Jboss is waiting for something at some point. here is logs..

      i can easily see that jboss is stuck at some point and waiting for some thing for almost 2 minutes(from 3.53 to 6.01 minutes)... dont know wt is this...and wt iit is doing there.....

      also i know that it deploys alot of unnecessary things that are not required by me on default setting.


      so can anyone please tell me how can i reduce its startup time?

      Thanks in advance.

          4 minutes is a lot. How much time does it take to boot the 'default' config out of the box without your application deployed?

          Maybe you should use the 'web' config (run -c web) which is closer to a bare tomcat config.

            yes 4 minutes is alot...

            i have tried it with web config and i can see difference of 1 minute. with web config almost 3 minutes

            also without my application it takes almost same time to start up. actually jboss is stuck at some point which i have highlighted ... thats the problem... when it reaches to my application then it takes only 20-30 seconds to load it as i can see it in logs...

            also the same application works fine with tomcat. no issue there.

            dont know wt jboss is waiting for at that point...
