Symptoms

WebLogic Server hangs while writing JTA logs. The client software cannot connect to WLS. There is no error in the application log. We collected a thread dump (kill -3) of the server java process and found the following key messages:

"ExecuteThread: '5' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default'":
waiting to lock monitor 01c96328 (object 2e4cdbf0, a weblogic.transaction.internal.TransactionLoggerImpl$IOBuffer),
which is held by "ExecuteThread: '17' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default'"
"ExecuteThread: '17' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default'":
waiting to lock monitor 01c96528 (object 2e4cdc08, a weblogic.transaction.internal.TransactionLoggerImpl$IOBuffer),
which is held by "ExecuteThread: '5' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default'"

JTA has transaction exceptions and is busy writing them to the JTA log and the server stops responding.
