ALM seems sluggish
Question ID: 109062

Our ALM seemed to be sluggish the other day.

We bounced ALM service on server and it seems corrected itself.
We are trying to understand what caused slowness and our performance team was asking since ALM is Java process, an assumption is it could be related to lots of garbage collections occurring.

Is there option to enable GC logging, add it to the JVM arguments so that we can monitor if Java garbage is cause if it happens again?

It could be the JAVA Heap setting to low for the number of projects you have active and how much activity they have.

You can check the JAVA activity anytime you want with the ''debug'' page:


There are various ''housekeeping'' activities going on all the time and sometimes, it gets bogged down with too much happening.
This can be alleviated by de-activating unused projects, and by adding RAM to the Server and allocating more HEAP (up to 80% of RAM).
We also assume this to be a dedicated server... as in NO other production tools running on SAME server -- these other tools could tax the CPU or use up RAM.
