High CPU And Large Numbers Of Files In "DOMAIN_HOME/servers/<servername>/logs/auditlogs/JPS" Directory (Doc ID 2614500.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 30, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Platform Security for Java - Version 12.2.1.3.0 and later
Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 12.2.1.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms


Weblogic servers use high CPU intermittently. The issue appears to be related to the threads associated to the Audit logging. CPU usage approaches 100% when the system is not being accessed.

Threads may be similar to this,


[ACTIVE] ExecuteThread: '38' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'" ... runnable
            java.lang.Thread.State: RUNNABLE
               at java.io.WinNTFileSystem.getBooleanAttributes(Native Method)
               at java.io.File.isFile(File.java:882)
               at oracle.security.audit.ajl.loader.AuditLoader.updateSources(AuditLoader.java:657)
               at oracle.security.audit.service.AuditLoaderManager.readMessages(AuditLoaderManager.java:369)
