Java application hang

Hi,

we are running a Java application in AIX 5.3.X, which hangs intermittently when reads messages from the queue and stages into DB. Killing the DB session in Oracle or restarting the application helps most of the time to continue but unsure about the root cause and permanent solution. Kindly help!.

regards,
suresh.

Are there any logs or any kind of memory issues.

According to IBM if there is a JNI (Java Native Interface) based application then:

http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/java/jdk/aix/13_64/README.HTML

You must set the following environment variables before running Java if you are using JNI:
export AIXTHREAD_SCOPE=S
export AIXTHREAD_MUTEX_DEBUG=OFF
export AIXTHREAD_RWLOCK_DEBUG=OFF
export AIXTHREAD_COND_DEBUG=OFF

these variables can be set in your /etc/environment file.

May fiddle around with java heap size using -Xms (Initial java heap size) and -Xmx (Maximum java heap size) switches while starting the application.

Oracle recommends Type4 JDBC drivers for such problems, in place of Type2 installed along with server installation.
