Symptoms

In WebLogic Server we may observe that the queue length (Server --> Monitoring --> Threads) value keeps on increasing, but never comes back until the servers are restarted. This behavior will not cause any performance impact.

The pending user request count is Zero, which means, if the Queue length value displayed is correct, then it should be the pending count for internal RMI requests.

In the heap dump, under weblogic.work.RequestManager, we only see one Queue, i.e., weblogic.work.CalendarQueue.
