Latency and SocketTimeoutException Between OSB And Back End Services Causing Long Response Times of Proxy Services (Doc ID 1377868.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Service Bus - Version 10.3 to 12.1.3.0.0

Symptoms

You have been observing very slow response from your proxy service that is making a call to another server.  The low performance of this service leads to incomining messages beeing queued.  

In addition, the following was observed in the OSB logs that appear related to the latency:
<Error> <WliSbTransports> [ACTIVE] ExecuteThread: '11' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'> <> <BEA-381304> <Exception in HttpOutboundMessageContext.RetrieveHttpResponseWork.run: java.net.SocketTimeoutException
