A stateless session bean (SLSB) is deployed in WebLogic 10.3.0. The SLSB only has one bean instance in the pool (max-beans-in-free-pool=1 and initial-beans-in-free-pool=1).
After several hours and with over 100000 incoming requests the bean instance goes into waiting state.
Since there is only one bean instance in the pool, this effectively hangs all incoming calls.

The thread dump shows the bean instance getting into waiting state:

"[ACTIVE] ExecuteThread: '13' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'" daemon prio=10 tid=0149e600 nid=48 lwp_id=5603464 waiting on condition [6c240000]
