WebCenter Sites Managed Server Taking Long Time to Start Up. (Doc ID 1673507.1)

Last updated on JULY 07, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Sites - Version 11.1.1.8.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

It takes a long time (many minutes) for the WebCenter Sites managed server to reach RUNNING state.

Thread dumps, taken while the server is starting, show one single thread reading from SystemLocaleString most of the time it takes for the server to start.

When the managed server is started, it first reads the entire SystemLocaleString table into cache. This is a relatively large table, but under normal circumstances it should not take more than a few seconds to read. The server will not get into RUNNING state until the thread is done reading the table.
